Memorial Day--Arlington Memorial Gardens and non-profit Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. are asking Cincinnati residents to help troops call home by donating gently-used cellular phones today. With ongoing deployments to combat areas and elsewhere, as many as 369,000 troops are serving in the U.S. military overseas. By donating gently-used cellular phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers, Cincinnati residents can provide troops with that precious connection to loved ones back home.
Residents can donate their phones to the cause at Arlington Memorial Gardens Reception Center at 2145 Compton Road.
Funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones are used to purchase pre-paid international calling cards. On average, Cell Phones for Soldiers distributes 12,000 calling cards each week to bases around the world, care package programs, deployment ceremonies and VA hospitals.
Donated phones are sent to Michigan-based ReCellular for recycling. For every donated phone valued at just $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers is able to provide two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed troops.
