Cell Phones for Soldiers Program

OUCU has partnered with GM and Invest in America to help collect old cell phones.

The donated phones are sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone -- the money is used to purchase prepaid calling cards which are sent to troops.

Cell phone donations are accepted at both OUCU branches. You can even donate phones that are no longer in working condition -- they will be dismantled and recycled to reclaim some materials.
