InTouch CU 40th Anniversary Celebration Ends with $4,000 Donation to Cell Phones for Soldiers

InTouch CU Cell Phones for SoldiersLast Thursday, InTouch CU presented a $4,000 check to Cell Phone for Soldiers. The credit union began their Cell Phones for Soldiers donation drive in April to honor their 40th anniversary.  The check, presented June 26, included all monetary donations from credit union members, matching funds from the credit union as well as an additional donation made by InTouch CU, beyond its matching promise.

Cell Phones For Soldiers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, collects donated cell phones, which they then refurbish or recycle in order to purchase prepaid international calling cards for troops overseas to connect with their loved ones at home. On average, the funds earned through these phone donations generate 30 minutes of talk time per dollar.
