From Yarmouth Police:

Please Support ‘Cell Phones for Soldiers’ and Donate Your Old Cell Phones at YPD

Yarmouth Police Department Cape Cod Community College Criminal Justice Program Student Intern Brianna Connors will be sending off another 200 unwanted cell phones today and the Yarmouth Police Department continues to serve as an Official Drop Off location for old cell phones in support of the Cell Phones for Soldiers program.

Cell Phones for Soliders accepts any cell phones and cell phone accessories that you may have – working, damaged and/or broken. 

Very old or brand new, they take it all! 

The phones are recycled and calling cards are given to our troops to call home at no cost.

It's the work and efforts of the citizens of Yarmouth and people all across Cape Cod which has already collected and sent over 3,000 cell phones to the program that allow Cell Phones for Soldiers to provide on average 12,000 calling cards to troops each week.

Everyone is urged to help Support our Troops and bring any unwanted cell phones or chargers to Yarmouth Police Headquarters and drop them off in our front lobby at any time 24/7. 

• An estimated 130 million phones will be retired this year in the United States

• Approximately 202,000 ounces of gold could be recovered if these phones had been recycled

There is nothing like the sound of a loved one’s voice calling home…
