CAP collects old cell phones to be reprogrammed and donated to battered women and families at risk through the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
Here's how it works. Drop off your old cell phone (with charger, battery, etc. if possible) to one of our drop off locations. You can get a receipt for your donation.
The phones are reprogrammed through a program with The Wireless Foundation, Motorola and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. You do not have to worry about the phone being traced back to you or being charged airtime. Emergency Airtime is provided by the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association. The phones are preprogrammed for 911 and possibly a shelter or other emergency number.
Phones can be delivered to the Resource Center at 3150 Payne Ave. Cleveland 44114 (Mondays and Thursdays from 2-6PM) or shipped there if you can't make it down.
You can now also drop off cell phones at Armbruster Moving & Storage at 2160 West 106th Street in Cleveland during business hours of 8-4. They are serving as a collection site for our cellphone program. Thanks to Armbruster!
We are looking for more places that can serve as drop-off locations and companies that can provide sponsorship for boxes, posters, receipts and shipping. Please let us know if you can help out.
This is a growing program with almost 1000 cell phones collected so far.
CAP is a 501c3 non-profit that is made up of volunteers who like to work with technology to improve lives.
