Cell Phones for Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing free means of communication to the men and women serving in the United States military.
Donated cell phones are sold to recycling partner, ReCellular. The money received from recycling cell phones is used to purchase calling cards and other communication tools for the U.S. military.
In July 2012, the Cell Phones for Soldiers launched a new program, Helping Heroes Home, which will provide emergency funds for returning veterans to alleviate communication challenges as well as physical, emotional and assimilation hardships.
High school community service and mitzvah project volunteers are encouraged to collect gently-used mobile phones. Once collected, the phones are processed and the proceeds go to Cell Phones for Soldiers. Cell Phones for Soldiers then provides those funds via prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas.
