Spiritual Work of Mercy: To comfort the afflicted;
If you have old cell phones in your cabinets or drawers, please consider donating them to Ascension for recycling!
We collect and send them to be redistributed to domestic violence shelters, senior centers, neighborhood watch programs, school crossing guards and other agencies with an immediate need for 911 access.
They take the phones, inspect them, erase any old data, clean them, change the batteries, and reprogram them to be used as 911 emergency phones. (Emergency 911 calls are free nationwide.)
Please: ONLY THE PHONE AND BATTERY. No Chargers or other accessories.
Collection box is located in the cabinet behind the bulletin boards in gathering area marked “Social Concerns.”
