Club, and Cell Phones For Soldiers Inc. are reminding you that old
cell phones and cords are still being accepted for donation at the
LCHS Assistant Principals Office school days between 8 a.m. and 3
p.m. The Lincoln Police Department is also accepting the phones 24
hours a day.
Cell Phones For Soldiers was founded in 2004 and has provided
more than 210 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and
women stationed around the world through its calling card program,
Minutes That Matter.
Funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones are used to
purchase prepaid international calling cards. On average, Cell
Phones For Soldiers distributes 3,200 calling cards each week to
bases around the world, through care package programs, deployment
ceremonies and to VA hospitals.
Donated phones are sent to Mindful eCycling for recycling. For every
donated phone valued at $5, Cell Phones For Soldiers can provide two
and a half hours of free talk time to deployed troops.
