Mobile & Cell Phones


cell phonesMany retailers (including Home Depot, Lowes, Staples, and Target), schools, police departments, and municipal transfer stations collect unwanted cell phones for profit or for people in need.

Verizon Wireless HopeLine refurbishes and distributes cell phones dropped off at store locations to domestic violence programs including Jane Doe, Inc.  Phones that can’t be refurbished are sold for parts, and the money is donated to domestic violence programs like JDI.

Cell Phones for Soldiers is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services to active duty military members and veterans
