Operation Tango Mike seeks old cell phone donations

THIS STORY HAS BEEN UPDATED


LAKE COUNTY – With the new requirements for hands-free devices required for cell phone use in vehicles, many folks will be upgrading to a Blue Tooth capable phone.


However, don't throw that old phone in a drawer! It will just collect dust and take up space.


Operation Tango Mike, a local group that sends care packages to troops overseas, asks that you donate your old cell phones (working or not), along with chargers, cases, etc. These will be "recycled" into calling cards for our deployed troops.


Check around, you and your family and friends may have old phones now. If you belong to a club, group, etc., please consider asking your fellow members to do the same. Just toss 'em in a box – it's that easy.


You may put your phone(s) in any Operation Tango Mike donation bin. The bins are located at Judy's Junction, Upper Lake; Sentry Market, Nice; Red and White Market, Clearlake Oaks; American Legion Hall, Clearlake; Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall, Clearlake; Hidden Valley Market, Hidden Valley Lake; Hardester's Market, Hidden Valley Lake; Hardester's Market, Middletown; Riviera Foods, Kelseyville; Mackey Tire, Lakeport; The Ink Spot, Lakeport; Kerrie's Quilting, Lakeport; Ironworker Gym, Lakeport; Safeway, Lakeport; Grocery Outlet, Lakeport; Bruno's Shop Smart, Lakeport; Umpqua Bank, Lakeport; and Sutter Lakeside Hospital, Lakeport.


Phones may also be dropped off at a packing party.


For more information call Ginny Craven at 349-2838.
