Take Note

Donate cell phones to help victims

You make the call on helping victims of domestic violence, the Center for Women says.

Donate old cell phones at three campus drop-off locations: Center for Women in Cox Hall; Dobbs University Center; and the Emory Police Department.

Some phones will become emergency phones for those targeted by domestic violence. Others will be recycled and the funds used to help women and children served by the Partnership Against Domestic Violence and the Georgia Coalition against Domestic Violence.

All information from the phones will be discarded so former owners are safe.

“Domestic violence is a serious problem in our society; it often affects the people we live and work with every day even without our knowledge. The cell phone drive provides an avenue for victims to seek help in a situation when they desperately need it,” says Cadet Adam Wright of the Emory Police.

This initiative is sponsored by the Center for Women at Emory; Emory Police Department; Emory Police Cadet Program; Volunteer Emory; the Office of Sustainability Initiatives and the Office of University-Community Partnerships. It is in honor of Women’s History Month (March); Sexual Assault Awareness Week (April 8-12); and Earth Week (April 18-25).
