How Your Business or Organization Can Help Troops and Veterans

May 29, 2017

Cell Phones For Soldiers is able to help so many troops and veterans because of the vast numbers of drop-off locations throughout the country. Many businesses, community programs and schools have offered to collect cell phones for us, which we recycle in order to buy calling cards for servicemen and women, and to provide emergency grants for veterans in need.

Partnering with a charitable organization can help your business: studies have shown that an overwhelming majority of consumers are more likely to support businesses that give back. Setting up a Cell Phones For Soldiers collection box in your reception area or near your cash register is an easy way to show your support for an important cause, and it provides a convenience for people in your community who want to drop off their phones and mobile devices!

You can establish a drop-off location in your business or organization’s office, or you can set up a collection drive for a more short-term effort or a special event. Make sure you alert your community news agency to let them know what you’re doing!

Collecting cell phones, smart phones, tablets and MP3 players is an easy and rewarding way to say thank you to the men and women who have served our country. To date, Cell Phones For Soldiers has provided more than 300 million minutes of free talk time, and given 3,100 veterans emergency funds for things like eviction prevention or help with cell phone bills. We’ll send you the box(es) you need to collect donations. Visit our set-up page to get started!

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