Donate Cell Phone

Please consider donating your cell phone to The Julian Center.  
It can save a life!
How is your cell phone donation used? In two critical ways:
  • Phones in good working order are provided to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault  to be used in the case of emergencies.  
  • Phones not in good working order, and any in excess, are recycled to reduce toxic waste and to raise funds for victim services.

Your donation acts as a lifeline.  How?  Imagine being a victim walking to your car one evening and your abuser appears out from the dark.  You are trapped.  Your only escape is to call for help.   Because of the generosity of someone you don't even know, you have a phone in your pocket programmed to dial 911.  With the push of a button, help is on the way.

How to donate your phone

Erase any stored information, including your contact list, text messages, and listings of incoming and outgoing numbers.
Make sure your account has been cancelled (or transferred) with your service provider.
Drop off your donation at our Shelter, 2011 North Meridian Street, or at our donation center, Thrifty Threads, 1501 West 86th Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46260.

On behalf of the women and children you will be helping, we thank you for considering The Julian Center.

 Think Green

One cell phone can
pollute up to 132,000
 liters of water. Sadly, two
million toxic mobile
phones are dumped in
landfills each week.
Please help stop the
toxic waste while
helping a victim
in need.

Did You Know?

FCC regulations require all working cell phones to be able to dial 911 regardless if there is an active service plan.
As long as the
phone has life, it can
save a life.
