Cooper Home Health Collecting Old Cell Phones for Recycling
Cooper Home Health is continuing to collect old cell phones to be recycled. Each phone donated buys an hour of time on a phone card for U.S. soldiers serving across the world.
There is a drop box in the foyer of the Cooper Home Health office at 51 North Side Square where anyone can drop off old phones and accessories Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 5:00. A donation receipt is also available since Cell Phones For Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible.
Other convenient local locations where phones may be dropped off are Cooper Community Health Center, Dairy Queen, Enloe State Bank, First National Bank, and the Post Office.
“We recently sent our first shipment of phones to be recycled and were pleased to have collected 103 phones. These are phones that have been kept out of landfills and at the same time are providing a great service to our armed forces,” said Nicki Beeler, administrator of Cooper Home Health.
Another box will be shipped in the coming weeks so anyone who has upgraded their phone and has an old one they would like to donate is encouraged to find a location and be a part of this worthy endeavor. For more information, go to www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com or call Melissa at 903-395-2811
