Herb Connolly Chevrolet’s Mission: Help Our Troops Call Home!

Posted by Herb Connolly in Uncategorized

Herb Connolly Chevrolet is pleased to announce our partnership with Cell Phones for Soldiers as a drop off location for unwanted cell phone donations. Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist from Norwell, Mass., with $21 of their own money. Since then, the non-profit organization has raised almost $2 million in donations and distributed more than 500,000 prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas.

The organization hopes to continue turning old and unwanted cell phones into more than 12 million minutes of prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas. To do so, Cell Phones for Soldiers expects to collect 50,000 cell phones each month through a network of more than 3,000 collection sites across the country. Herb Connolly Chevrolet is now one of those locations!

You can help support the brave men and women who serve in our military by simply donating any unwanted cell phone you have. The money earned from the sale or recycling of these phones is then used to purchase prepaid calling cards for our soldiers overseas. As a special gift for donating, Herb Connolly Chevrolet will also give you a FREE Car Wash and Vacuum service!

According to Robbie Bergquist, co-founder of Cell Phones for Soldiers, there are more than 130 million cell phones retired every year in the United States. The reuse and recycling of your old phone can have a significant impact, and help a soldier call home! Ask your friends and neighbors to get involved too. Together we can make a simple call home mean so much.
