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.

If you have a cell phone you would like to donate you can mail it to:

Call to Safety Cell Phone Project

P.O. Box 42610

Portland, OR 97242

or you can drop it off at any of the following locations:

HILLSBORO

PORTLAND

  • In Other Words, 14 NE Killingsworth
  • PSU, Women’s Resource Center, 10th & Montgomery, basement of Montgomery Hall
  • Southwest Community Center, 6820 SW 45th

BEAVERTON

  • We’re currently seeking cell phone donation drop-off sites in Beaverton. Please let us know if your business is interested! Email drey@calltosafety.org for more information.

What we do with your phones: Call to Safety uses cell phone donations in a couple different ways. Older phones are packaged up in a ziplock with the charger and some Call to Safety information. These phones are given to survivors so they can make 911 calls for their safety. Smart phones and/or newer models of phones are sent to a cell phone recycling company that recycles the phone and sends us a check for the phones we send them. We use the money we get from the company to fund our services for survivors.

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.

“For too many years, I compared myself to other survivors. I felt guilty for not healing fast enough and felt too damaged to be loved. That all changed in this last year, since I have been interning at Call to Safety. Due to the amazing support, knowledge, and dedication the staff at Call to Safety have exposed me to, I have grown tremendously and have turned my trauma into fuel to help other survivors.”
