College Chevrolet Buick Collects Cell Phones for Soldiers

US servicemen and women across the world are separated from their families with minimal contact. Luckily, organizations like Cell Phones for Soldiers exist to help deployed US military members connect with their loved ones on a more regular basis. This year, College Chevrolet Buick in Albion, Michigan, is a drop-off location for Cell Phones for Soldiers.

Cell Phones for Soldiers collects gently used cell phones and recycles them to help provide cost-free communication services to active-duty military members and veterans. The money made from recycling donated cell phones is used to buy calling cards to send to displaced service members. In fact, since its inception in 2004, Cell Phones for Soldiers has provided over 210 million minutes of free talk time, and the organization mails an average of 3,200 calling cards every week.

The organization offers two different programs—Minutes that Matter, and Helping Heroes Home. Minutes that Matter provides calling cards to veterans, and can offer over two and a half minutes of free talk time to soldiers with every $5 donation or donated device valued at $5. Helping Heroes Home provides emergency funds for returning veterans to help reduce challenges with communication and assimilation.

Those who wish to donate cell phones or money to the cause can do so at College Chevrolet Buick, located at 333 Bemer Street in Albion, Michigan, between now and Veterans Day, November 11th.

For more information, contact the dealership directly at 517-680-4284.
