RHINELANDER - You know technology moves fast. That means you probably have old cell phones laying around. Now, you can put them to good use.
The Cell Phones for Soldiers program started today in Rhinelander. It's one of many ways the Oneida County Military Support Group continues help troops overseas.
"The last Saturday of every month, we gather up the items that we are going to ship and then we pack them and ship them. This Saturday we had, I think there was ten girl scouts here helping us pack, which was really nice," says Ray Zastrow, Onieda County Military Support Group.
Now the group teamed up with AT&T to get cell phones to soldiers. Many people were there to support the program, including State Representative Rob Swearingen and State Senator Tom Tiffany.
"If you have phones at home that you are not using, cell phones, there's several collection spots in Rhinelander right now that you can drop off the phones," says Ray Zastrow.
You can take your old cell phones to Trig's, Nicolet College, the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce, the V. F. W. Club House, the American Legion Building, and Wal-Mart.
