Unwanted cell phones being collected to help U.S. troops
A local effort is under way to convert old, unwanted cell phone into phone cards that can be used by members of the military serving abroad.
The national “Cell Phones for Soldiers” program is being coordinated locally by Joyce Handa of the Poway Kiwanis Club. Boxes have been placed at several public locations where the phones will be collected and shipped to the program’s headquarters, where each phone will be exchanged for a 120-minute calling card. Those cards will be distributed to U.S. troops for calls back home.
Collection boxes have been placed at the Hamburger Factory, Poway High School, Twin Peaks Middle School, Painted Rock Elementary and Village Mail & More (intersection of Rancho Bernardo and Pomerado roads).
