Donate Old Cell Phones

One organization you might be interested in donating to is Triad of St. Joseph County.

Triad is collecting old cell phones and turning them into 911 phones to help the elderly in the community.

The cell phones can only be used to dial 911, but can be used anywhere there are towers.

Any age and style cell phone can be donated as long as they are in good working condition and have chargers.

Officials with Triad hope that with the holidays almost over, they will see a boost in donations.

"We're hoping we'll get a quite a few, cause’ a lot of people got new cell phones for Christmas and they don't know what to do with their old ones," explains Barbara Brownell with Triad of St. Joseph County.

If you are interested in donating, you can drop your old cell phones off at Howard Park Senior Citizen Center between 10AM to 5PM after January 1st.
