Phone recycling program helps soldiers
Placeholder Image
To honor those wounded serving the nation and to celebrate National Military Appreciation Month, Pioneer Services has created the “Answer the Call Now” cell phone recycling program. The phones will be recycled for money, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to USA Cares’ “Combat Injured Program,” which assists wounded service members and their families with immediate financial needs.
“Anyone can help both the environment and our nation’s wounded heroes simply by bringing in an old phone that’s collecting dust somewhere,” said Tom Holcom, president of Pioneer Services. “The phones are diverted from landfills, and every penny we get from those phones will be used to lend a hand up to military families with a loved one who was injured defending America. It’s a fantastic win-win campaign.”
The “Answer the Call Now” campaign runs through May. Those interested in donating an old cell phone can visit the Pioneer Services office at 103-S Gen. Screven Way in Hinesville from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday, and from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays.
“Those who have served, and are serving, have given so much to our nation that it just makes sense to give something back to them,” Holcom said.
