Splash Car Wash Joins Cell Phones for Soldiers
DEXTER, Mich. – Cell Phones for Soldiers hopes to turn old cell phones into more than 12 million minutes of prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas in 2008. To do so, Cell Phones for Soldiers expects to collect 50,000 cell phones each month through a network of more than 5,000 collection sites across the country.
Full service locations at Splash Car Wash now feature a drop box for this great program. Just bring your old phones in when you come in for your car wash and we'll handle getting your donation to where it needs to go.
Phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers enough to provide an hour of talk time per phone to soldiers abroad.“Americans will replace an estimated 150 million cell phones this year,” says Mike Newman, vice president of ReCellular, “with the majority of phones either discarded or stuffed in a drawer. Most people don’t realize that the small sacrifice of donating their unwanted phones can have a tremendous benefit for a worthy cause like Cell Phones for Soldiers.”
Kevin Frank, our Area Manager Jay Frank's brother, has been deployed to Kuwait and then on to Iraq probably. Cell Phones for Soldiers left all the troops leaving a package with phone cards in them! It works! Remember, we're giving away a free wash for everyone who brings in an old cell phone for the soldiers.
