I don't know all the details but I do know for an old cell phone that most of us would just throw away by donating to cell phones for soldiers th hey provide much needed talk time for deployed armed forces personnel to call there loved ones.
This is not about anything but allowing
those who keep us and our families safe to contact their families.

Our Company started collecting phones last February. Had planned on doing it for a few months. Due to the over whelming response from our small town of less than 1000 people we are still collecting and have no plans on stopping. We have mailed in over 500 phones to date with more coming in each week.
This is a Great Organization and Proud to be a part of it!
Keep up the Great work! I highly recommend every American to join this great cause!

This organization is great! No only do they fulfill a need often overlooked by military support groups, but they also help the environment. I've donated many phones over the years and will continue to aid this effort.

The Great!

recycling phones to benefit our troops overseas.

I am sort of disappointed because I have yet to receive any confirmation that the phones I have sent over the past two years were received. I have also submitted names on the website and don't know if any of the soldiers received phone cards. Our AMerican Legion Riders group also does care packages and I would love to know how to get cards back from this organization to put in our packages-just not sure who to contact-haven't had a lot of luck with the email contact-we have been doing this for over two years now-any ideas on how to have a better experience?

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Send out a confimation of receipt-I know this would take extra money and manpower though.....

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

People are so happy when they give me a phone-it makes them feel like they are doing something worthwhile

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

no experienc

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

use it to make sure that all our troops have the ability to call home

Ways to make it better...

I received confirmation from the phones I sent-I do NOT use prepaid labes-I pay the costs to ship myself and my return address is on every box sent.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Trying to operate cheaply

One thing I'd also say is that...

It's a wonderful program and according to the other comments I've seen, working great-maybe I need to put forth more effort...

I can't say enough good things about Cell Phones for Soldiers. I am part of another non profit organization that supplies soldiers with care packages monthly. We have started collecting old phones, sending them in and in return CPFS gives us the calling cards that we can send in the care packages. Our soldiers are so appreciative of the calling cards.

They have generoosly shared the calling cards with the non profit organization I participate in that sends care packages monthly to soldiers in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Middle East.

Our American Legion Post Auxiliary recently became a drop off for used cell phones. I have so far sent in two shipments for processing. In addition, I collect addresses for our local soldiers who are deployed or stationed away from their families so that we can send care packages to them. I asked if we could get a couple dozen phone cards to include in this year's Christmas packages... we received 100 cards and thanks to your generosity, our soldiers were able to share phone cards with others stationed and/or deployed with them:-) Thank you!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

our care package mailing... I collect addresses from our local families who have soldiers deployed. These packages not only help brighten a soldier's day, but also their families here who know that others are caring about their loved ones, too!!

I am an American soldier and wanted to thank "Cell phones for soldiers INC" for sending me and my battle buddy phone cards to be able to call our families and hear the voices of our kids and loved ones. Thanks for support and care!

I have been collecting Cell Phones for Soldiers for 3 1/2 years now and have collected over 4500 phones and still going strong. When I need phone cards for our area soldiers and their troops, it is never a problem. No matter the qty. It is a very rewarding feeling to know that our soldiers can communicate with their families while they are deployed.

The Great!
