We need your help!
The Belt Team is participating in the Cell Phones For Soldiers program this month. While troops may be coming home from Iraq, there are still many soldiers serving and protecting us around the world. This program is close to our hearts. Two of our Belt Team members (Krissy Cruse & Mary Jane Perry) have active duty spouses (in the United States Marine Corps & United States Navy respectively), Mary Jane is also retired from the United States Navy herself, Pauline Knipe’s spouse, a Desert Storm vet, served as an officer in the Unites States Marine Corps and Jerry Belt served in the United States Air Force. So we especially know what it’s like to be far away from home & feeling disconnected.
The goal of the program is to help our soldiers be able to call home. Here’s how it works:
- We collect old cell phones and donate them to Cell Phones For Soldiers, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
- Cell Phones For Soldiers sells them to a company that recycles phones.
- The money that is received from the recycling company is used to buy calling cards that are sent to our soldiers.
Simple – right?
We bet lots of you got new cell phones for Christmas or just have old phones sitting around doing nothing . . . and now you know what to do with them! Help The Belt Team reach our office goal of 100 phones!
Contact The Belt Team at (703) 242-3975 or email us at Info@TheBeltTeam.com and we will arrange a time for pick up. (You can also drop them off at our office: Keller Williams Realty – 6820 Elm Street in McLean.)
PS – All kinds of phones are accepted. They don’t have to be working. And we don’t need all the accessories. You can use this cell phone data erasing tool to remove personal info from your phone before you donate it.
