Bring gently used cell phones and tablets
Garage Door Company Collecting Cellphones Throughout April
Action Automatic Door & Gate collecting gently used cellphones for Earth Day
Action Automatic Door & Gate has partnered with Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc., a national nonprofit that has provided more than 300 million minutes of talk time to troops and veterans around the world, to collect gently used cellphones and other mobile devices in commemoration of Earth Day.
Through the month of April, Southwest Floridians can donate their smartphone, cellphone or tablet in any make, model or condition at one of two Action Automatic showrooms:
- 11360 Metro Parkway, Fort Myers, Fla. 33966
- 275 Airport Road North, Naples, Fla. 34104
For every donated phone valued at $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers can provide two and half hours of free phone conversations to deployed military members. Additionally, since most cellphones will net $5 in recyclable parts, the organization’s “Minutes That Matter” movement uses those funds from the phones that cannot be sent to military personnel to purchase at least 1,500 prepaid phone cards per week.
“People may not necessarily think of Earth Day when they consider how to help our military,” said Walter Sprenger, President/CFO of Action Automatic. “However, when you think of even the poorest functioning phones as components, you can help a soldier in the deserts of Afghanistan connect with
his or her loved ones, instead of finding another way to cover the landfill with harmful toxins.”
For more information about this 47th Cell Phones for Soldiers Earth Day Celebration, call Action Automatic’s Fort Myers showroom at (239) 768-3667 or the Naples showroom at (239) 643-3667.
