Support Our Troops with Santa, Bring Used Cell Phones to Liberty Tax Service

DAYTON, OH – 12/15/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Liberty Tax Service will host a Cell Phones for Soldiers (CPFS) Re-Grand Opening Party and Phone Recycling Event Tuesday 20 December 2016 starting at noon at the office located at 3251 W. Siebenthaler Ave, Dayton, OH 45406.  To mark the relocation in the neighborhood Liberty Tax will provide free pictures with Santa, a toy giveaway for the kids, refreshments, and free tax advice. The goal is to generate as many donated phones to CPFS that Dayton possibly can provide.

Cell Phones for Soldiers makes contact with home a reality for troops who are stationed overseas and face excessive phone calling charges. This dilemma prompted two concerned teenagers to start CPFS with just $21 of their own money. Teenagers Brittany and Robbie Bergquist of Norwell, Massachusetts and their family have enlisted the help of sponsors and phone companies to recycle used cell phones to provide calling cards to soldiers. As a National Premier Partner for CPFS, Liberty Tax has collected more than 140,000 used cell phones since 2004, totaling about 20 million minutes of calling time for our military. The website www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com has details for those who would like to make cash donations.

“If you have an old phone and are unsure what to do with it, help a soldier call home by dropping it off at one of our Liberty Tax locations. This is a great opportunity to make a huge difference – and an added bonus is that you get to claim it as a tax deduction if you itemize,” said David Reed, owner of Liberty Tax Service on Siebenthaler Ave in Dayton.

All Liberty Tax offices are collection locations for used cell phones to benefit Cell Phones for Soldiers.
