Donate your old cell phone to charity!

Today's shipment is over 13 pounds! 

Live & Learn Compounding Pharmacy is your local drop off spot for Cell Phones For Soldiers,
a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services and emergency funding to active-duty military members and veterans.

Thanks to the generosity of our patients and local community we have shipped over 100 pounds of donated cell phones to this charity!

Founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist, then 12 and 13 years old, Cell Phones For Soldiers relies on generous cash contributions and donations of gently-used cell phones to provide a lifeline for America’s bravest.

Cell Phones For Soldiers has two programs:

o Minutes That Matter provides free calling cards to active-duty military members to connect with loved ones.

o Helping Heroes Homes assists veterans with emergency funds to alleviate communication challenges as well as physical, emotional and assimilation hardships.

Since 2004, Cell Phones For Soldiers…
  • Has provided more than 300 million minutes of free talk time.
  • Since July 2012, Helping Heroes Home has assisted more than 3,100 veterans and their families with emergency funding.
  • Recycled more than 15 million cell phones, reducing the impact on landfills.
  • Mails approximately 1,500 calling cards each week.
Please consider donating your used cell phones, chargers, and accessories to this worthy cause.
