RSVP of Macon and DeWitt Counties has paired up with Cell Phones for Soldiers for our 9-11 Day of Service Event. We are asking residents to help troops call home by donating gently-used cellular phones. Although the military landscape is ever changing, as many as 200,000 troops are serving in the United States military overseas around the world. By donating to Cell Phones For Soldiers, area residents can provide a lifeline for America’s bravest.
RSVP will be holding a collection drive from 10am to 2pm on September 11, 2014 at 302 S. Union St. (Lower level parking lot) RSVP Staff and Volunteers will be on site to collect your donated cellular phones, and for your convenience we will collect right from your car window!!
If you are unable to pass through on September 11, 2014 from 10am to 2pm please feel free to stop by the RSVP office to donate by the end of the month.
Donation receipts will be available on site.
For more information contact Charlie Gillaspie RSVP Director at 217-428-6616
