In honor of their duty and sacrifice, you can help our active duty U.S. Military by donating your used cell phones this Christmas.

Ntelos Wireless has partnered with Cell Phones for Soldiers to provide free communication tools to troops stationed overseas.

Money received from the recycling of donated phones is used to purchase calling cards crucial in an emergency and comforting to call family and friends they miss during the holidays.

Drop off your used phone at any Ntelos store between now and December 31.

"We just feel it's our way of giving back to our community. We have a lot of local men and women that serve in the Armed Forces and we just feel like it's our way," says store leader Michelle Wiltse. "We wish they were home for the holidays, but because they're not this is the only way we can think to help them out -- at least give them the opportunity to call home and speak to their loved ones."

If you want to give this holiday season and do something that will be well received and genuinely appreciated, Cell Phones for Soldiers awaits your donation for the troops.
