Cell Phone Donations
At our District meeting this past month, it was announced that in 2017, the Center for Prevention of Abuse had received over 800 cell phones from our District UM churches. I think it’s amazing that almost 100 of those phones were from our Morton church! Right now, I have 20 phones ready to deliver, so we’re off to a good start for 2018. You can drop them off in the gathering area at the church in a box labeled for phone donations. The Center wipes them clean and programs them for 911 calls only. They are then distributed to women for use in emergencies. What a good way to recycle your old cell phones.
