Cell phone drive: collecting cell phones to save lives

 Permanent link

During the month of April, The Student Coalition for Diversity and Social Justice will be collecting cell phones and other electronics. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence partners with Cellular Recycler for the collection of used cell phones and select digital electronics. Your donation will support programming that helps stop violence in the home.

To donate please drop items in the collection boxes located in the Recreation and Fitness Center (A1106) during Monday – Friday. Operational hours are 6 a.m.--9 p.m. Or you can make donations at the Student Life Suites (A2100) during Monday – Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

NCADV is recycling items to:
• Fund programming that empowers victims of domestic violence, connects victims and survivors to helpful resources, and helps them remain free from abuse.
• Support legislation aimed at ending domestic violence.
• Give support and resources to organizations across the U.S. working to stop violence in the home.

Any cell phone in any condition and their accessories (most wanted: iPhone and Blackberries, but we will take what you have) are welcome. Chargers, accessories, cords, etc. are accepted too.
