Each contribution provides military members with precious talk time through our Minutes That Matter program, and it gives one-time emergency financial assistance to returning veterans through our Helping Heroes Home program.

DESCRIPTION

Donate your old cell phones, mp3 players, or tablets to Cell Phones for Soldiers! Items are recycled in exchange for talk time minutes and cell phones for soldiers.
