Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

We realize, due to the Coronavirus, that your life has drastically changed over the past week. Please know that we understand the emotional turmoil that you are feeling. Having to deal with the loss of a loved one during this time adds to that exponentially.
Despite the Coronavirus, our offices will remain open and our staff will continue to offer the same level of care to which you have become accustomed. Our main objective is to ensure that we take every precaution necessary to minimize the risk for contamination of the Coronavirus. For this reason, we are asking that you please call our funeral home (904-249-1100) prior to coming to coming in to see us. We are doing our best to schedule time between appointments to accommodate the CDC’s recommendation of social distancing.
We will, whenever possible, perform the services that you request for your loved one; however, there could be circumstances that are out of our control which will hinder some requests. We are already experiencing rescheduling and cancellation issues with cemeteries, churches, caterers, etc. If you are planning to attend a service that has previously been scheduled please call to confirm that it has not been cancelled or rescheduled. We will handle all issues presented to us as this situation unfolds.
No one is immune to what is happening in our nation. Please stay safe, we will all get through this pandemic together.

4 Great Reasons To Support Cell Phones For Soldiers

July 31, 2018

We’re proud of the work we do here at Cell Phones For Soldiers to support our troops and help veterans in need. Since 2004, we have worked to make a difference in the lives of the brave men and women who serve (and have served) our country in uniform.

And we couldn’t do it without our donors.

Thousands of people and organizations have helped Cell Phones For Soldiers help others, by donating old cell phones and other mobile devices and raising money for our cause. Donors understand the meaningful work we’ve done for the last 14 years, and we’d like to share some of the reasons you should give to Cell Phones For Soldiers to help us continue our mission.

  1. We help our troops stay connected with their loved ones.

Though international calling is less of a hassle than it was when we first started, many deployed troops find that having a personal phone is impossible during a tour, either because of cost or security reasons. Our Minutes That Matter program has given more than 350 million minutes (and counting!) on calling cards to deployed men and women so they can call home. Maintaining connections with home during a deployment is critical to morale and to reassuring families at home.

  1. We recognize the challenges our veterans face.

The transition to civilian life can be mentally, physically and emotionally stressful, and veterans are unemployed at a higher rate than nonveterans. Sometimes that means they can’t meet financial obligations—utility bills, rent, communication costs—and need a little boost. Our Helping Heroes Home program has provided one-time grants to more than 3,000 veterans. We believe that our veterans are owed a lifetime of support for their work protecting our country.

  1. We’re green!

Our name is a bit of a misnomer. Instead of giving recycled cell phones, smartphones, tablets and other devices directly to military servicemen and women, we recycle them for their valuable parts that can be sold and reused. This serves a number of environmentally friendly purposes: it keeps electronic waste from landfills, where harmful materials can cause damage to human health and fragile ecosystems; recycling plastic helps us do our part to keep non-biodegradable material out of our oceans; and recycling the rare earth metals used in electronic devices reduces the need for mining.

To date, we have recycled more than 15 MILLION mobile devices!

  1. It’s easy to give.

You can contribute to Cell Phones For Soldiers by donating money directly and securely through our website, or by sending us your old cell phones and mobile devices. You can either print off a shipping label here and send in your recycled items or find one of thousands of drop-off sites by doing a location search.

Cell Phones For Soldiers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and we rely on your tax-deductible donations to help us help our country’s bravest men and women. Even a small donation makes a difference—give today!
