Donate Your Old Cellular Phone & Help Save Lives

Help support The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust in our mission in eliminating illiteracy, poverty, hunger, domestic violence and homelessness in southeastern Michigan, including Wayne, Macomb, Oakland and Monroe counties.

By donating your cellular phone to us, you will not only help us raise funds for the organization’s programs, services and activities, but you will also be helping a needy family, a child, a domestic violence victim, a physically ill individual in need of 911 assistance, a senior and an individual in need of shelter, food, clothing, shoes, coats, boots, hats, toys and books.
The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust is collecting used cell phones on an on-going basis for the benefit of The Gift Of Giving Every Penny Count Fundraiser, who will receive a monetary donation for each phone received.
The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust is collecting used cell phones in our efforts to significantly increase fundraising. In conjunction with the Charitable Recycling Program, a donation payment will be made to The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust for each and every cell phone collected – regardless of age or condition.
With more than 150 million cell phones retired in the U.S. each year, the fundraising potential is tremendous. Because cell phones and their batteries contain toxins they should not end up in landfills. The Charitable Recycling Program provides the community with a cost-free and convenient recycling opportunity.
Recycling benefits more than the environment. Recycled cell phones are used for social good as many donated phones are distributed for 911 (emergency only) services, providing battered adults, children and senior citizens with a direct link to necessary communication. Other recovered phones are reused in less developed countries where the cost of a new phone is prohibitive, or, in areas of the world where there are no land (wire) lines. Obsolete used cell phones are destroyed in an environmentally-responsible manner, with 100% landfill diversion. This announcement coincides with The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust e-waste reduction efforts, as the program illustrates the leading role of The Gift Of A Helping Hand Charitable Trust is taking towards assisting the community with technology recycling.
