Interested in getting involved? There are many different ways you can help AWARE and JCADA. If your school approves us, you can receive community service hours for helping us out.
Organize a Cell Phone Drive
Organize an old cell phone drive at your school, synagogue, local community center, or even in your neighborhood. Ask friends, family members, classmates, or community members to donate their old cell phones. Collect all the phones and donate them to JCADA. The phones can be old and even broken. No charger or any accessories needed. Please send the cell phones to P.O. Box 2266 Rockville, MD 20852. We partner with the Verizon Wireless Hopeline program, so you can also drop the cell phones off at a local Verizon Wireless store. Contact us if you need materials to help you start your cell phone drive or if you have any questions.
We will recycle the old cell phones and make them available to our clients. Victims of domestic abuse often need cell phones, temporarily or permanently, to help them deal with an abusive situation or to rebuild their lives.
Please send the unused gift cards to P.O. Box 2266 Rockville, MD 20852 or contact us to arrange a convenient time to drop them off.
