Cell phone donations

An important resource for VOICES’ services is the Cellular Phone Donation Program. VOICES of Stephenson county accepts any and all cell phones. The phones are given to victims and used as 9-1-1 phones to maximize their safety and communication support. Phones that are not in working order or too costly to activate are sold to a grassroots recycler. Funds generated by all cell phone donations are used for client necessities such as personal hygiene items, toilet paper, food, transportation to services, and more. Donation containers are located at the following participating businesses.

  • Book Nook (Lincoln Mall)
  • State Bank
  • Cornerstone Credit Union
  • Crossroads Community Church
