Another Shipment to Cell Phones For Soldiers!

Just a reminder that Live & Learn Compounding Pharmacy is a drop-off location for Cell Phones For Soldiers. Bring us your used cell phones and tablets for donation. We are so pleased to be shipping another 10 pounds of cell phones to this organization.

Cell Phones For  Soldiers is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to serving troops and veterans with free communication services and emergency funding. The organization was founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist at the ages of 12 and 13, just  two patriotic kids who wanted to give back to the men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting us each and every day.

To date the charity has provided more than 300 million Minutes That Matter to our troops serving around the world, and it continues Helping Heroes Home via emergency funds that so far has assisted more than 3,100 veterans and their families.

Minutes That Matter program has always had a simple mission: to help troops call home, at no charge.Generous donations have made it possible for the organization  to provide more than 300 million minutes of free talk time by sending more than 5 million calling cards to servicemen and women and recycling more than 15 million cell phones. Each contribution worth $5 provides 2.5 hours of talk time for America’s bravest men and women.

Helping Heroes Home  provides one-time emergency grants to aid veterans making the transition back into civilian life. Since July 2012, this program has helped more than 3,100 veterans overcome communication challenges and physical, emotional and assimilation hardships by providing funds for things like communication services, imperative car repairs, rent payment to avoid eviction and more.
