I want to thank The Cell for their continuous support and contributions for my daughter's softball team. I thank you for your generous support in 2007 for The Valley Sting and in 2008 for The Ohio Magic. In these tough economic times I know it's hard to solicit for activities such as this but year after year you give generously so that kids in the community can enjoy activities that they would not be able to do without the support from their community. I attempted to solicit from several other businesses in the area and many were economically unable to give and I understand this but what I don't understand is how a community can not look at the whole picture of a business. I also understand that you donated and contributed to the YSU softball team. When we look at something we should look at it collectively and honestly and paint a picture of it's full truth not just half of it. I don't patronize The Cell, I'm a 32 year old mother of two but they gave anyways no questions asked. I know that right now the economy is struggling and people in Youngstown are facing tough socioeconomic times and I will be saddened if we loose another business that actually not only payed taxes but helped the community.
