Joe Robach wants to inform soldiers and veterans about a wonderful non-profit that provides cell phones for soldiers.  Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services to active duty military members and veterans.  This program collects cell phones, and their accessories, and helps turn them into prepaid calling cards to be distributed to US military personnel stated overseas.

Since its inception in 2004, Cell Phones for Soldiers has worked to keep military families connected by providing FREE communication tools to those serving overseas in the United States military. In seven years, the registered 501(c)(3) has provided troops with more than 2 million prepaid calling cards, equating to more than 150 million minutes of FREE talk time.

Cell Phones for Soldiers hopes to continue its mission to provide troops with FREE calls home through and the recycling of used mobile phones. Used mobile phones from all service providers are accepted. Each donated device valued at $5, will provide troops with 2.5 hours of FREE talk time.  For residents living in the Town of Greece or the greater Rochester area, you can drop off your used cell phone to Assemblyman Reilich’s district office (a certified drop-off site) on West Ridge Road.  This program is vital in keeping military families connected.  Joe Robach believes that it provides a tremendous service to soldiers and veterans as well as their loved ones.
