Cell Phones for Soldiers Campaign and Young Agents' Social

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Now’s the time when we need to be thinking about those who need our help.

The IIAV Young Agents Committee has selected the Cell Phone for Soldiers program as one we can support. Our U.S. soldiers and their families are heroes that continue to help our country in so many ways, and here’s a way that we can help them back.

Let's face it, every time we upgrade our cell phones and get new ones, we have plans to either donate or sell the old one. Yet, we never get to it. Now we have the chance to help our environment and get cell phones and minutes to our military and their families. Cell Phone for Soldiers is a great program.

We’re going to designate May and June as our collection months. On June 24, we'll hold a social at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, West Creek from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m., where we can get together and track our progress. (Hey, any reason we can think of these days right?)

The below flyer shows cell phone drop-off locations we’ve already established.  If you want your agency to be a drop-off location in your area, let us know at and we’ll list your site!

How YOU can get involved:

  • Take your old cell phones to a drop-off location near you.
  • Have your clients send you their old cell phones to contribute.
  • Post on your social media that we’re collecting old cell phones and how to donate. Use #cellphonesforsoldiers and #VAYoungAgents
  • If you can’t get the cell phones to a drop off location, send them to the IIAV office at 8600 Mayland Drive, Richmond, VA 23294.
  • The Cell Phones For Soldiers website has some great resources and informational flyers you can use in your client contact and social media.

Register below for the Young Agents' Social on June 24 at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery from 5:30 – 8:00  p.m.! This will be our first in-person get together in a LONG time.
