How you can help: Simply drop off your used cell phones at HAVEN’s offices. Don’t worry — all of your personal information will be erased.

Guidelines: Wireless cell phones, PCS phones, and tablets only please. Phones meant for home use, bag phones, two-way radios, and walkie-talkies are not accepted. Please note, HAVEN is not in need of cords or chargers and will not receive funds for them. They will be recycled if they are included.
