Fundraising for an Electric Vehicle Charging Station


Youth for Change is looking to purchase an electric vehicle charging station for the school. In order to help fund the purchase, they are collecting old cell phones to be recycled. The phones are sent to a company in Florida called Shelter Alliance, which recycles 100% of the cell phones donated. Shelter Alliance contributes free shipping as well as a charitable donation, which varies depending on the quality of the phone received.
