Giving Items

Smartphones & Cell Phones
Save the Environment, Save a Life


Do you have used smartphones or cell phones you don't need? Donate your phones 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 you will also be helping to prevent another person from becoming a victim of violence.

Drop your used smartphone or cell phone off at the Women's Center today!
