Cell Phones

We Need Your Old Cell Phones

Helpmate accepts old cell phones for use by those who need a spare phone capable of calling 911 when in imminent danger.  The phones must be unlocked, but do not need to have a service provider or SIM card. We do ask that they be wiped clean of any personal information and include the charger.  Please place the charger and the phone together in a zip lock bag. Phones can be dropped off at the reception area at the Family Justice Center, 35 Woodfin St. (across from the YMCA in downtown Asheville), Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.  A receipt for tax purposes can be provided by the receptionist, if desired.
