Help Provide Phone Cards For The Troops

Eaton Family Credit Union is proud to be part of a network of 270 credit unions across the country supporting U.S. troops by collecting used cell phones. Funds from the donated phones are then used to purchase prepaid calling cards that are distributed to soldiers.

In conjunction with General Motors and Invest In America, a credit union advocacy program by CU Solutions Group in Livonia, MI, Eaton Family Credit Union’s Euclid office has a drop box for used and unwanted cell phones. Each credit union office will also distribute postage paid mailing labels so anyone can send in their phones.

Started by Robbie and Brittany Berquist of Norwell, MA, in 2004, Cell Phones for Soldiers is a non-profit that provides prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas with the money raised from cell phone donations. The donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone.
