Cell Phone Drive Helps Abandoned And Neglected Kids at Christian City

The community is invited to help local businesses collect cell phones to support the abandoned and neglected children who live at the Home For Children at Christian City. Collected phones will be sent to a recycle center who will refurbish and recycle the phones, giving Christian City between $3-$10 for each phone. The money raised will help pay for food, clothing and medical attention among other needs for the children who live in the cottages on Christian City's campus.

All types of cell phones are desirable, working and non-working. The following sponsors are serving as drop off locations:

Located in Union City, Christian City has been serving the community since 1965 when they opened the first cottage for eight little boys who needed a safe, loving, place to live. Now, over 40 years later, this nonprofit, nondenominational organization is home to over 1000 residents including seniors. Community support is always needed and the cell phone drive is an easy way to get involved and help meet the needs of those less fortunate. If you would like to participate in the cell phone drive to help raise money for Christian City kids or for general information about Christian City, call Debs MacNellis at 770-703-2636 or access
