Do you have old cell phones lying around? Make a difference in our community! Call to Safety collects cell phones and distributes them to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Survivors are able to use these cell phones to call 911, allowing immediate help at the touch of a button. Call to Safety also recycles used cell phones. All profits and proceeds are used to fund services for survivors accessing Call to Safety.

- We’re currently seeking cell phone donation drop-off sites in Beaverton. Please let us know if your business is interested! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please note: At this time we have reached our capacity for 911 phones. However, we are still enthusiastically accepting donations that are sent to a recycling center. The money that comes from these phones goes directly towards our advocacy program. We do not need chargers, accessories, handbooks, or headphones with these phones.
To protect your privacy, we recommend you remove all personal information from your phone before making your donation.
All cell phone donations are tax deductible. If you would like an acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes, please include a piece of paper with your name and contact information.
If you have any questions about the cell phone program, you can call the Call to Safety Business Office at (503) 232-9751.
