PASS IT ON: Donate Old Cell Phones For Minnesota Domestic Violence Victims
"Dialing 9-1-1 can be a life-saving call!"
By collecting cell phones and putting them in the hands of adults and children who've experienced domestic violence, they'll be able to call 911 on those phones. Even when the phone has no plan attached. As long as the phone is charged, 911 will always work, it's the law.
What Do I Need To Do To Donate My Phone
According to FSR's Dave Beal,
After clearing personal information from your cell phone (if you have a smart phone, just reset it to factory settings), drop it off along with the charger at Family Service Rochester’s main office at 4600 18th Avenue NW or their south building at 1625 Highway 14 East.
It's that simple.
