Cellphones for Soldiers
Randolph Firefighters Local 1268 is asking for help to participate in our 6th annual cell phone drive for the registered non profit charity Cell Phones for Soldiers.
Cell Phones for Soldiers core mission is to provide a means for our military personnel to call home at no cost. This is accomplished by collecting and recycling unwanted cell phones, chargers and accessories. The proceeds from these items are then used to purchase pre paid callling cards for our troops serving overseas.
Local 1268 is extremely proud of its association and support of this fantastic charity. To date we have collected and shipped 4600 cell phones worth over $23,000 in prepaid calling cards for our men and women in uniform.
This holiday season is fast approaching and many of our military heroes will not be home in time to be with their loved ones. By taking the time to donate a single phone to this cause you will be promoting CPFS goal of keeping these families in touch during what can be a difficult time of year.
Any make or model cell phone, cell phone battery, pager, charger, PDA or accessory in any condition will be accepted for this incredibly simple and successful cause. Donations may be left at Central Station, 10 Memorial Parkway, Randolph, MA or call 781 961-0991 for other arrangements of information.
Thank you to all the Locals, Departments, businesses, civic organizations and citizens who continue to support our troops through this charity.
