And Help Connect Those Who Support Us

Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for volunteering your time and energy to Cell Phones For Soldiers. Your commitment connects lives and sends strength to our servicemen and women all over the world. Each contribution provides military members with precious talk time through our Minutes That Matter program, and it gives one-time emergency financial
assistance to returning veterans through our Helping Heroes Home program.

Much of that aid begins here, with volunteers like you. Here you’ll find the essential cargo, tools you need, to provide lifelines for America’s bravest—whether you want to establish a drop-off site or start a drive to collect smart phones, tablets and mp3 players. You can find additional support for your efforts in the Volunteer Resource Center.
