Cell phone recycling drive to benefit victims

Posted 10/8/12

PROVIDENCE – A month-long cell phone recycling drive is being held by the R.I. Attorney General’s office to benefit the victims of domestic violence and the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Throughout October, the public is invited to drop off old and discarded cell phones and cell phone accessories at courthouse offices in Newport, Providence, Warwick and Wakefield as well as at the Attorney General’s office in Providence.

The recycled cell phones are refurbished and then reprogrammed and used as 911 Emergency phones for individuals in the community at risk of domestic violence.

“Even the simplest act of intervention can be one that saves the life of a victim of domestic violence,” said Deborah DeBare, executive director of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

“Donating an old cell phone helps fund programming that empowers victims of domestic violence and helps them remain free from abuse, and gives support and resources to local organizations across Rhode Island working to stop violence in the home,” said R.I. Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin.
