Want to organize a cell phone drive?
It’s fun. It’s easy. And, your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers will thank you for putting their old cell phones to good use.
Usually you just need a sign or two, a collection box, and you’re ready to go. If you are interested, please contact Jessica White at (317) 941-2205 before finalizing your efforts. Jessica will provide you with the information you need, answer any questions, give you ideas, and help you with delivery.
Suggestions? Make it a family affair and work within your neighborhood, church or sporting events. Or, make it a group effort at work and challenge your co-workers to join in.

Before donating a cell phone, please remember to instruct all donors to
- Erase any stored information, including contact lists, text messages, and listings of incoming and outgoing numbers.
- Make sure the phone is no longer active and the service plan has been cancelled (or properly transferred).
How cell phone donations are used?
In two critical ways:
How do cell phones act as life lines?
- Phones in good working order are provided to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault as life lines 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.
FCC regulations require all phones to be able to dial 911 regardless if there is an active service plan. Donated cell phones programmed to 911 are provided to victims to carry in case they need emergency help.
Cell phone donation drop-off
Donated phones should be brought to The Julian Center at 2011 North Meridian Street. Please call Jessica White at (317) 941-2205 to make arrangements so we can meet you and accept your gifts.
