Thrift Store collects cell phones to aid victims

W.O.W. Thrift Store is joining corporations, small businesses and individuals in the national “Donate a Phone CALL to PROTECT” campaign to collect old wireless phones that provide domestic violence victims with a lifeline in an emergency.

The program started by the Wireless Foundation, Motorola and National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, was designed to collect old wireless phones, then refurbish, reprogram and distribute them to victims each year; so, more phones are needed.

W.O.W. Thrift store is located on the corner of Zion Street and Argil Road in Nevada City and will be collecting phones on an ongoing basis.

If you have a phone you’re no longer using, please donate it today at W.O.W. Thrift Store in Nevada City. For more information on the campaign, call 1-888-901-SAFE or at 478-9151, or visit
