Take used cell phones to Liberty Tax Service to support troops
From press release
Give an American soldier a chance to talk to loved ones just by bringing your used cell phones to the Liberty Tax Service office at 916 W. Riverside Drive in Rockford or 7700 N. Second St. in Machesney Park.
Cell Phones for Soldiers makes contact with home a reality for soldiers stationed in Iraq and overseas who face excessive phone calling charges. This dilemma prompted two concerned teenagers to start CPFS with $14 of their snack money. Teenagers Brittany and Robbie Bergquist of Norwell, Mass., and their family enlisted the help of sponsors and phone companies to recycle used cell phones to provide calling cards. As a National Premier Partner, Liberty Tax Service has contributed more than 12 million minutes of calling time for our military since 2004. The Web site www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com has details for those who would like to make cash donations.
“If you’re one of 153 million cell phone users who upgrade and don’t know what to do with that old phone, help a soldier and take it to Liberty Tax Service. There is a huge potential to make a difference with over half of the people holding on to old phones and not recycling,” said Gene Baker, of Liberty Tax Service. “This is an easy way to make a difference for those serving America overseas.”
