USO seeking old telephones

September 25, 2014
In the wake of this month’s launch of the Apple iPhone 6 and the sale of more than 10 million units, the USO of Illinois is conducting a campaign to collect and recycle old cell phones and smartphones.
The nonprofit is accepting the broken and outdated devices at its headquarters at 333 S. Wabash Ave., Chicago, (312) 822-6699; and at centers at O’Hare International Airport, (773) 686-7396; Midway International Airport, (773) 582-5852; and at Naval Station Great Lakes, North Chicago, (847) 688-5591.
The USO of Illinois earns money for every phone, money that goes to help fund programs and services put on by the USO of Illinois for local military. The agency is a 501(c)3 organization serving the needs of the U.S. military community since 1941, through the generosity of the American people.
Questions can be directed to Jill Gayton, the agency’s associate director of programs, at
