500 minute pre-paid phone cards for 10 of our local troops
stationed away from home.
The Darke County Solid Waste District and Darke County Solid Waste Policy Committee member Pete Trocano are collecting unwanted cell phones. Pace-Butler Corporation from Edmond, OK will pay the district for phones shipped to them.
The funds received from the collection of unwanted cell phones will be used to purchase pre-paid phone cards for our Darke County troops stationed away from home. The Darke County National Guard Armory is handling the disbursement of the phone cards.
We are asking for your help. All we are asking is that you donate any cell phones that you have at home. Also, if you know of any businesses that provide cell phones to employees, please ask if there are unwanted cell phones they would like to donate. Chargers and accessories are not needed.
There is no cost to the district to participate in this program, so 100% of the proceeds will benefit our Darke County troops stationed abroad.
Where can you drop off your unwanted cell phones? Donation boxes can be found at the following locations: Darke County Solid Waste, Darke County Veteran Services, Sweet One O One, Mercer Savings Bank Main Office, Old National Bank in Union City, Francis Furniture, Kroger’s, PAWS Bingo, Eikenberry’s, Tractor Supply, YMCA, Brethren Home Community Room, Kitchen Aid Experience and Mississinawa Schools.
Pete Trocano, member of the Darke County Solid Waste District Policy Committee, Krista Fourman, Director of the Darke County Solid Waste Management District, and Linda McKibben, Administrative Assistant for the Solid Waste District are responsible for planning, promoting, and coordinating the program.
