The Citrus Creek East apartments in River Ridge are holding a cell phone drive in July to support Cell Phones For Soldiers. This non-profit organization’s mission is to supply free communication to the American armed forces through donations and recycled cell phones.
This important initiative accepts donated gently used cell phones which are sold to whole sellers or recycled. Every $5 contribution or donated device valued at $5 provides U.S. military troops with two and a half hours of free talk time. Since 2004, Cell Phones for Soldiers has provided 181 milion minutes of free talk time to soldiers, mails approximately 12,000 calling cards each week and recyled more than 10.8 million cell phones, reducing the impact of landfills.
Citrus Creek is accepting cell phones from now until July 31. Cell phones can be dropped off during office hours at either Citrus Creek East or Citrus Creek West. Anyone is welcome to donate to this cause, but only residents of Citrus Creek East will be eligible for a drawing to win a $50 gift card to Jimmy John’s.
If you have an old phone that is not being used, this is a great way to put it to good use and help soldiers stay in touch with family, friends and loved ones while on active duty. While you are dropping your old cell phone off at Citrus Creek East, make sure to take a tour of these fantastic apartments in River Ridge. Their one and two bedroom apartments are spacious and modern and the community includes an on-site fitness center and a recreation center with a theater room for entertaining.
