announced the company’s latest corporate philanthropy effort – ZTE Charity

Continuing a long tradition of ZTE charitable activities, ZTE USA is committed

Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County and is in the midst of a social media
campaign to enable fans across the country to donate to the Clubs.
“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is very important to
us and speaks to ZTE’s mission to help people around the world connect with
one another in meaningful ways,” commented Lixin Cheng, CEO, ZTE USA, and
president, North America Region, ZTE. “We are so pleased that our partnership
with the Texas Legends will benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County
and will help to empower the local children in the community that so many at
ZTE call home.”
“The Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin County is proud to call ZTE one of our
partners,” remarked Mike Simpson, CEO of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Collin
County. “Both ZTE and the Texas Legends give a tremendous amount back to the
