Springtime is the Right Time to Donate Your Old Cell Phones

mobile phone recyclingDepending on where you live, it may not look anything like spring outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start your spring cleaning!

It’s a great time to donate your old clothes to charity, give unused toys to kids’ organizations and find new purposes for things you haven’t used in a while. But what do you do with those old cell phones in your junk drawer or attic?

With Cell Phones For Soldiers, you can donate used cell phones and mobile devices—regardless of their condition, working or not—to help our troops and veterans! Through our Minutes That Matter program, we recycle those devices for their valuable components and use that income to provide free talk time to deployed troops so they can stay connected with home. Our Helping Heroes Home program helps veterans in need with grants for things like communication services and eviction avoidance.

Simply letting those old cell phones collect dust takes up space in your home. Throwing them in the trash is harmful to the environment. So, donate your old cell phones to Cell Phones For Soldiers and give them new life to help our nation’s bravest men and women!

To donate, find a drop-off site near you or print your own shipping label at home to mail your phones or devices in. We accept new and used, working and nonworking, cell phones, smartphones, tablets and MP3 players.

Cell Phones For Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
