Red Cross Has Cell Phones For Soldiers Program 

The American Red Cross is helping soldiers over seas keep in touch with their loved ones back home and they need your help. The cell phones for soldiers program takes old cell phones and accessories and for every phone they turn in, it helps give soldiers abroad an opportunity to talk to their loved ones. Trudy Darling is an Account Executive at the Red Cross and she’s urging folks to drop their old phones off. “If you’re driving by, stop and give your old cell phones cause we’re still doing the cell phones for soldiers,” she says, “We do take those cell phones and turn them into 60 minute international phone cards and we want to send those to our troops.”You can drop off your old phones at 900 B Hammond Street in Bangor.
