Thanks to the overwhelming continued generosity and support of the members of the Greater Danbury and New Milford communities, unless specifically listed below, the Women’s Center can no longer accept donated items other than those that are NEW, designated for specific clients, or for our Holiday Programs.
Cell Phones – Save the Environment, Save a Life
Do you have an old cell phone you want to get rid of? Donate your phone to the Women's Center and you will be assisting someone in need! Phones that have working chargers can be used as 911 phones for our clients. Even after a cell phone’s monthly service is turned off, it can still be used to dial 911.
Phones that are broken or do not have a charger can still be donated - we send these phones to a program called Shelter Alliance which refurbishes them or uses their parts AND gives the Women's Center a percentage of each phone's worth. Not only will you be preventing the toxins from your old phone from harming the earth and future generations, but also you will be helping to prevent another person from becoming a victim of violence.
Drop your old cell phone off at the Women's Center today!
