Spring Cleaning, with a Special Meaning

March 19, 2017

mobile phone recyclingAh, spring! Finally, after a long winter, we’ve arrived to longer days and a season of renewal… and the time-honored tradition of spring-cleaning.

As you go through your home to refresh your wardrobe, hand down well-loved and dusty toys and books, and toss out unneeded clutter, you may come across a familiar site: cell phones your family no longer uses.

Instead of taking up space in your junk drawer or closet, those cell phones, smartphones—and even tablets—can be turned into something truly valuable: hours of free talk time for members of the military, as well as assistance for veterans, provided by Cell Phones For Soldiers.

When you donate your old mobile devices to Cell Phones For Soldiers, a few important things happen: First, you’re keeping your electronics out of landfills, preventing potentially harmful materials from endangering our environment.

You’re also giving back to those who serve us. Cell Phones For Soldiers recycles your old mobile devices, turning their valuable components into Minutes that Matter, a program that has provided more than 300 million minutes of calling time to our troops. That money also provides emergency assistance to veterans through Helping Heroes Home, a program that has given grants to 3,100 veterans and their families.

So, while you’re sprucing up your home for the spring, donate your old mobile devices to Cell Phones For Soldiers, and help our troops and veterans in the process. To send your devices, or to find a drop-off location near you, visit our donation page. Cell Phones For Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
