Cell Phone Collection Drive hosted by Veteran Services

Tuesday, November 11 - Friday, December 12
Troy Records Office & Novi/UC Administrative Office

Veteran Services is hosting a cell phone collection drive benefiting Cell Phones for Soldiers.  The organization recycles old cell phones to purchase international calling cards for active duty military.  The cards are given to service members deployed overseas to connect with family and friends back home.  Each $5 contribution or donated device valued at $5, provides them with 2.5 hours of free talk time. 

Newer or gently used phones from all service providers are accepted.  Note:  Please deactivate the phone, turn off the power, and keep the battery attached.  If there is no battery, place tape over the terminal ends.  If you don’t have an old cell phone to donate, the organization also accepts monetary donations.  Please visit their web site to make a contribution online.
