Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist from Norwell, MA, with $21 of their own money. Their goal is to help our soldiers serving overseas call home by providing prepaid phone cards. For more information visit www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com
Cell Phones for Soldiers hopes to turn old cell phones into more than 12 million minutes of prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas in 2008. To do so, Cell Phones for Soldiers expects to collect 50,000 cell phones each month through a network of more than 3,000 collection sites across the country.
The phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each donated phone – enough to provide an hour of talk time to soldiers abroad.
If you’d like to donate, Ms. Degnan will be placing a box out front of the office the week of May 2nd, to collect old phones.
