USED CELL PHONE COLLECTION & FUNDRAISER! This summer our church is participating in a cell phone fundraising drive. There is nothing for you to buy or sell to participate. We simply ask that you donate your extra inactive cell phones to our drive. This drive will benefit your family, your church, and the environment by keeping harmful materials the phone contain out of our landfill. The collection box is in the back of church. A Tax Deductible Receipt for you is located on the box.
