District Offices Serve as Locations for “Cell Phones for Soldiers” Donations
Area residents can do their part to support members of the military and veterans by donating used mobile devices to “Cell Phones For Soldiers” at one of my district offices.
“Cell Phones For Soldiers” is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to serving troops and veterans with free communication services and emergency funding. Founded in 2004, the organization has provided more than 300 million minutes of talk time to troops serving around the world.
Donations of newer or gently-used cell phones and tablets from all wireless carriers and brands are accepted. Each donated device valued at $5 will provide troops with an estimated 2.5 hours of free talk time.
This is a great way to show our support for troops who are often far from family and friends, serving our country. I urge area residents who may have a phone they are no longer using to donate it to Cell Phones for Soldiers as a way of thanking our members of the military and veterans and helping to them to keep in touch with those at home.
