Pak Mail Beachside in Vero Beach has Partnered with Cell Phones for Soldiers

October 25th, 2013 by

Vero Beach, FL– Pak Mail Beachside and nonprofit Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. are asking Vero Beach residents to help troops call home by donating gently-used cellular phones. Although the military landscape is ever changing, as many as 200,000 troops are serving in the U.S. military overseas around the world. By donating to Cell Phones for Soldiers, Vero Beach residents can provide troops with that precious connection to loved ones back home.cell phones for soldiers

Beginning today, residents can donate their phones at Pak Mail Beachside’s store located at 505 Beachland Blvd. on the northeast corner of Mockingbird and Beachland.

“It is such a great way to give back and show our support for the brave men and women who make our freedoms possible,” says Susan Lorenz Pak Mail Beachside’s manager.

Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded in 2004 by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist at the ages of 12 and 13. The charity has since provided 192 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and women stationed around the world. Funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones are used to purchase prepaid 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 Pak Mail Beachside that take the initiative to support our troops,” said co-founder Brittany Bergquist. “The communication gap between those serving and their families is a crucial need that Cell Phones for Soldiers is committed to addressing for years to come.”

Donated phones are sent to Mindful eCycling for recycling. For every donated phone valued at $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers is able to provide two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed troops.

Approximately half of the phones Mindful eCycling processes are reconditioned and reused. Phones and components that cannot be refurbished are dismantled and responsibly recycled to reclaim materials, including:

  • Gold, silver and      platinum from circuit boards
  • Copper wiring      from phone chargers
  • Nickel, iron,      cadmium and lead from battery packs
  • Plastic from      phone cases and accessories
