Send to Heritage Agency on Aging (HAA) on the Kirkwood Community College Cedar Rapids campus. HAA has a cellular phone project that is a program for seniors in the seven-county region. People from the community can donate their used cell phones, along with a working wall battery charger, to HAA, who dispenses the cell phones to seniors 60+ by mail, free of charge. The caller can use 911 only. The phones can be used as security if the person is too far from a landline phone during an emergency. The supplies are low. Consider donating your used cell phone and charger to this worthy cause.
