Home / Cell Phones for Soldiers

We Support the Cell Phones for Soldiers Program

Please bring your old cell phones to Golden's at 605 Commercial St SE.
Any questions, please call 503.364.2257.

Cell Phones for Soldiers hopes to turn old cell phones into more than 12 million minutes of prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas in 2008. 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.

The phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each donated phone – enough to provide an hour of talk time to soldiers abroad.

Sending your children to their first day of school is difficult for many parents. Imagine sending your children away to a war zone not knowing when you'll hear from them again. One military mom shares just how precious those connections are.
xxx"Again, thank you for providing the means to which our brave men and women in uniform can talk with loved ones while away fighting in the war zone. We appreciate all that you do, and as a mother of two children who fought during several tours of duty, I valued the time I was able to spend talking to my daughter and son. My son received two purple hearts while in Afghanistan and it was comforting to be able to speak to him while he was there. It truly is a valuable service you are providing to our fighting men and women and their families and friends. God bless you." -Parent of two military members.
Whether it's one or multiple deployments, connecting with your loved ones back home is a lifeline for America's bravest.

"I'm a soldier in the United States Army. I've been to both wars, Iraq and Afghanistan multiple times and I've been in for eight years and I wanted to truly thank you for what you do for us soldiers. It means the world to us. Everyone thanks us for the job we do but without the support of our own heroes at home we couldn't do our jobs, so thank you from all of us.
"-U.S. soldier
