Kankakee, IL – Today, State Representative Lindsay Parkhurst (R-Kankakee) announced her office will be partnering with Cell Phones for Soldiers to make her district office an official drop-off location.
“For all our soldiers do and veterans did for our country, we must give back and support them. The members of our military, past and present, make enormous sacrifices. Often, they are separated from their families across the country or across the globe. By partnering with Cell Phones for Soldiers, the 79th District helps soldiers and veterans speak to their loved ones thousands of miles away. I’m asking for your help. Please donate an old cell phone or tablet. ” Rep. Parkhurst said.
Cell Phones for Soldiers is a national non-profit charity dedicated to serving soldiers and veterans with free communications and emergency funding. Newer or gently-used cell phones and tablets from all wireless carriers are accepted and help provide free talk time.
