Donate phone for National Night Out Against Crime

I am donating my old cell phone today to help domestic violence victims as part of the National Night Out Against Crime in the Bronx. 

My cell is not fancy or anything, but it is a working phone. I was using it until recently to conduct interviews and do my work related to this blog actually. But I changed phones. I also now have Google Voice and Skype, so I have no need for this old blue phone.

Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. is asking Bronxites to turn in unwanted cell phones to help victims of domestic violence as part of Verizon Wireless’ Hope line Program. 

Donated cell phones will be given to victims to be used to call counselors and law enforcement for help. For many victims, these cell phones you donate today could possibly make a difference between life and death.

If you have an unwanted cell phone just taking up space in your house, why not use it for this cause? 

Bronx Latino supports this effort to help combat domestic abuse in our communities, our families, our people.

Talking about the BP, he will be making several stops, visiting different precincts throughout the borough as part of the 26th Annual National Night Out. This crime and drug prevention event was created to strengthen police-community relations to protect neighborhoods against crimes. We could sure use that in New York City!
