Here at Allmand Law we understand that charitable giving and volunteerism is an integral part of our commitment to serving our communities. The team here at Allmand Law is proud to announce our support for Cell Phones for Soldiers, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing cost-free communication services to active duty military members and veterans.
Allmand Law Firm and Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. are asking Dallas residents to help troops call home by donating gently-used cellular phones. With ongoing deployments to combat areas and elsewhere, as many as 369,000 troops are serving in the U.S. military overseas. By donating gently-used cellular phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers, Dallas residents can provide troops with that precious connection to loved ones back home.
Beginning February 1st 2013, residents can donate their phones to the cause at Allmand Law Firm locations, including:
5646 Milton Street, #120
Dallas, TX 75206
Fort Worth Office
5601 Bridge St
Fort Worth, TX 76112
Please help those that have protected us!
Siblings Robbie and Brittany Bergquist founded ‘Cell Phones for Soldiers’ at the ages of 12 and 13. The charity has since provided more than 114 million minutes of free talk time to service men and women stationed around the world. Funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones are used to purchase pre-paid international calling cards. On average, Cell Phones for Soldiers distributes 12,000 calling cards each week to bases around the world, care package programs, deployment ceremonies and VA hospitals.
“Each year we have been humbled by the amount of people and organizations like Allmand Law Firm that take the initiative to support our troops,” said co-founder Brittany Bergquist. “We have also watched the communication gap between our armed forces and their loved ones continue to grow as more troops are deployed for their third or fourth tour overseas.”
Donated phones are sent to Michigan-based ReCellular for recycling. For every donated phone valued at just $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers is able to provide two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed troops.
