ALTON — State Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, will host a Cell Phones for Soldiers drive through Wednesday, Dec. 30.
“Many people have old smartphones or tablets that they no longer use,” Beiser said. “Cell Phones for Soldiers takes the recycled electronics and puts them to use by giving our servicemen and women overseas free talking time with their loved ones, and provides aid to veteran families in need through emergency funding.”
Residents can drop off their donations of old smartphones or tablets to Beiser’s constituent services office at 528 Henry St. Beiser will be accepting donations through Dec. 30. The office is open from 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
“I encourage all area residents to consider donating these items if they are available to them and are no longer in use,” Beiser said. “The Cell Phones for Soldiers drive will give area residents a chance to help make a real, positive impact on the life on military heroes that have served and are currently serving.”
For information, contact Beiser’s constituent services office at (618) 465-5900.
