Make a Difference

Your recycling cell phones support Operation Shoebox and our heroes at home and overseas.

Using the power of cell phones to help our heroes, at home and worldwide.

Think of Operation Shoebox when you upgrade your cell phone: you may not want an old phone anymore, but we do! When you collect old cell phones and donate them to us, we recycle them. The money earned by recycling old cell phones is used to purchase phone cards for soldiers to call home and to cover shipping costs.
