Cell Phones for Soldiers has donated hundreds of calling cards to be placed into my care packages.
It is run by a fantastic family who has kept it very grassroots while providing so much to our military members.
I love this organization.

Growing up as a military child, I often went long periods of time without seeing my dad. We didn't have cell phones then. Now, Cell Phones for Soldiers gives families a line of communication, that we previously never had. I am truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such a caring and giving organization.

Cell Phones For Soldiers is great company, supporting a great cause! I am proud to support CPFS, as I appreciate their dedication/passion for providing our Soldiers with free communication services and emergency funding, all while protecting the environment through utilizing proper recycling methods in processing all cell phones that are donated.

I'm so proud to be part of an organization that does so much for active duty military members through Cell Phones for Soldiers and Minutes That Matter as well as helping our veterans through the Helping Heroes Home program.
We couldn't continue without the wonderful efforts of our volunteers throughout the country who set up drop off sites to collect used cell phones. Thank you for your support!

Cell Phones is a Great Charity! I have gotten the privilege to see the inner workings of their process, and they are defiantly dedicated to providing the best service. From the moment the donation is received all the way until the benefits of the charity are given to our armed forces overseas, every phone is tracked maliciously to ensure data security. Their sorting and data sanitation process is nothing short of incredible! It's truly amazing to see how much effort goes into the processing of these phones to generate a great finished product. what is inst there to like? They turn our a great product, and it benefits our armed forces over seas!!
