In a recent AARP poll, an estimated 88 percent of seniors throughout the U.S. say they feel safer and more secure with access to a cell phone.
To help in this effort, a non-profit program -– Phones-For-Life –- has been established to collect used cell phones for people over the age of 60. These phones, programmed to be either 911-only phones or phones with 100 in-case-of-emergency minutes, are then donated to anyone over 60, free of charge.
Phones-For-Life has recently extended its reach to schools. Through a new program, Phones-For-Education, students raise money for their school by collecting used cell phones and donating them to seniors in the community.
