Cellphone For Soldiers Far Exceeds Goal
They come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
The recycled phones will provide nearly 42,000 minutes of free calls for troops overseas.
Griffo said: “I already knew that we live in a very thoughtful and giving community, but I am in awe by how much the public stepped up once again to help us far surpass our goal by recycling so many more cell phones than last year. All of the hundreds of phones collected this past month mean that so many more of our troops will be able to call home to speak with their loved ones for the holidays, and I am proud of the patriotism that this reflects in our community.
The collection drive took place from November 11th through December 12th. It spanned Griffo's district, where the public could drop off any used mobile devices at collection bins.
"Cellphones For Soldiers" was a joint effort by Senator Griffo and AT&T
