Cell Phones For Soldiers Mission

Cell Phones For Soldiers is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services and emergency funding to active-duty military members and veterans.

 


Our Story

At the age of 12 and 13, Robbie and Brittany Bergquist heard the story of a soldier returning from Iraq with a near $8,000 phone bill. They decided to do something about it and with just $21 and some help from their parents, Cell Phones For Soldiers was born.
