Recycle Old Phones To Help CASA

K-DOCK 92.9

Dig out your old mobile phones, inkjet cartridges and PDA’s, to help support neglected and abused children in our community. When you donate your old electronic items, you’ll be supporting the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Coos County as well as helping children get placed into safe and permanent homes.

Stop in to any designated locations and donate unwanted phones, modems, PDAs, and inkjet cartridges to be reused or recycled by Phoneraiser. Recycling these items will enable you to be able to help out a child in need. All proceeds go directly to support CASA of Coos County, which provides a volunteer to advocate for the rights of children in the court system. These children will be able to have an advocate by their side until a permanent safe home is available. The following locations are drop-off points:

North Bend:
Aaron’s (Bi-Mart Shopping Center)
Video & More

Coos Bay
Wal-Mart (Customer Service Desk)
Abel Insurance
Yellow Cab Lobby
Newmark Center
ORCCA’s Child and Family Resource Center

CASA volunteers better the lives of abused and neglected children and advocates are specially trained to be a voice for those children and advocate for what is in a child’s best interest. They work with case workers, community partners, and the court system to find a permanent and stable home in a timely manner.
