The Library celebrates one of its ongoing recycling initiatives!
Cell Phones for Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides communication services to active duty military members and veterans.
- The organization was founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist, then 12 and 13 years old, with only $21.
- Through 2011, the Bergquists' efforts have provided more than 168 million minutes of prepaid calling cards to troops
- Cell Phones for Soldiers has prevented more than 10.5 million cell phones from ending up in landfills.
What does this mean for you? If you recently got a new cell phone, please consider donating* your old one at the Library! Since Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library joined forces with Cell Phones for Soldiers in March 2010, our customers have donated over 800 phones! Your generosity has helped connect our overseas troops to their families and helped protect our environment!
*Before donating your cell phone, please make sure your personal information and contacts have been removed!
