Support Our Troops by Donating Your Old Cell Phone

Everyday 3Gstore ships a package, we include an insert for an organization called ‘Cell Phones for Soldiers.’ If any of our customers have an old cell phone they’re looking to get rid of, they can donate it to this organization. Each donated used cell phone allows Cell Phones for Soldiers to fulfill the mission of providing service men and women with the opportunity to communicate with loved ones for free.

Each month, Cell Phones for Soldiers reports back to 3Gstore thanking us for our support. In their most recent e-mail they let us know they had received 14 cell phones from our efforts during the month of December, 2012 – providing 840 minutes of talk time for troops.
Due to the cell phone recycling program, more than 10 million cell phones have been recycled since 2004. So not only can we help our troops, but we can also help reduce the impact on our landfills. We encourage you to continue to support Cell Phones for Soldiers yourself, but also to let family and friends know how they can help as well - cell phones and cash donations are welcome. Like our friends at Cell Phones for Soldiers say, "One phone call can truly make a difference."
