Service Project: Cell Phones for Soldiers

Cell Phones for Soldiers


Help our troops by donating your gently used cell phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers. Donated phones are sent to Michigan-based ReCellular for recycling. Your donation to Cell Phones for Soldiers does more than just recycle your old cell phone and keep dangerous toxins such as lead, bromine, chlorine, mercury, cadmium, and lithium out of landfills. For every donated phone valued at just $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers is able to provide two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed soldiers.

How to Donate

CFI members can donate their phones at any CFI-MI event statewide. Event hosts will have directions for shipping. Donations can also be brought to the Grand Rapids CFI office at 3777 44th Street. A donation box is located in the south vestibule, facing 44th Street, and is accessible anytime.

Have an iPhone? Through the Cell Phones for Soldiers Buyback Program you can earn up to $326 for your used iPhone. Go to for more information.
