old cell phones2WOOD RIVER – State Senator Rachelle Crowe’s (D-Glen Carbon) district office in Wood River is a new drop-off location for the non-profit Cell Phones for Soldiers organization, she announced today.

“This program provides a secure way to dispose of unwanted electronic devices while benefitting those who protect our freedom overseas,” said Crowe, a member of the Senate’s Veterans Affairs Committee.

The non-profit collects old, broken cell phones and tablets and sends them to be refurbished or recycled. Proceeds from those sales are used to send prepaid international calling cards to our troops and to provide emergency funding to veterans. All cell phone donations are tax deductible.

Crowe’s district office is located in Wood River City Hall at 111 N. Wood River Ave., Suite A. Hours are from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
