Old mobile phones and phone accessories are collected on the UVM campus to benefit Women Helping Battered Women, a local Burlington non-profit organization. The collection is sponsored by the UVM Police Services department.
Phones donated to the Women Helping Battered Women organization benefit them in two ways. Phones that are still in working condition are reprogrammed and provided to individuals who are victims of domestic violence. Phones that are not in working condition are recycled, with proceeds going to WHBW organization. Cellphone accessories are also welcomed donations.
