There are tons of phones in junk drawers across America waiting to be collected and turned in to calling card cash. In honor of May being National Military Appreciation Month, the Library will be holding a cell phone drive. We will collect used cell phones and send them to Cell Phones for Soldiers. They will recycle the phones and use the money to purchase calling cards for deployed soldiers to call home. This nonprofit organization currently sends out an average of 6,800 calling cards per week.
There is a collection basket in front of the Youth Desk. Donations receipts are available upon request and are at the youth, circulation, and information desks. Thanks in advance for your support of this program. You can "go green" and be patriotic at the same time. For more information visit Cell Phones for Soldiers.
