Great Choice Chiropractic and nonprofit Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. are asking Valley residents to help troops call home by donating gently-used cellular phones.

Residents can donate their phones at Great Choice Chiropractic, 6125 W. Chandler Blvd., Suite 4, in Chandler.

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. 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. For more information, visit www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com.
