The Penn State Berks Office of Health Services will be collecting old cell phones to benefit Berks Women in Crisis during the month of April in recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).
Berks Women in Crisis collects the phones and recycles them for a profit through a Florida organization called Shelter Alliance. The phones will be refurbished or responsibly recycled.
Faculty, staff, and students are asked to remove the SIM card chip from the phone prior to dropping it off at Health Services, located in room 8 of the Perkins Student Center. Phone and batteries will be accepted; accessories are not needed for this collection. For more information, contact Health Services at 610-396-6075.
