Senator George Amedore is hosting a Cell Phones for Soldiers event this holiday season. If you have an old cell phone or tablet, you can donate them to one of the three drop-off locations in Montgomery County — satellite office in Fonda (County Annex, Rm. 121), the Canajoharie Library or the Amsterdam Free Library. They will recycle them and with the money earned from recycling the devices, they will purchase and supply soldiers, who are deployed, with calling cards, so they can contact their loved ones over the holiday season. The program starts on Monday, Nov. 23 and runs through mid-December. If you’d like more information on the program, please visit www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com.
