Cell Phones for Soldiers

Douglas--- Students in Coffee County have developed a way to help troops overseas keep in contact with loved ones back home. It's called Cell Phones for Soldiers.

For the past six weeks, students in Coffee County have been collecting old cell phones. They will be sent to a recycling center, and the students will use the money to buy pre-paid phone cards for troops who are deployed.

"Everybody has them in their drawers put away, and that's the thing, clean out your drawers. It's Spring time, get them in and turn them in for a good cause for these soldiers," says Coordinator Judy Worrell.

So far the students have collected more than 200 phones to be recycled.
