Donate your used cell phones and inkjet cartridges
Thursday, March 12, 2009 • Posted March 12, 2009

Please donate your used cell phones and inkjet cartridges to help raise much needed funds for Texas Heat Baseball, a select baseball team made up of Johnson City and Blanco youth. Texas Heat is collecting used cell phones and inkjet cartridges through June 15, 2009 for the purpose of traveling and participating in the American Youth Hall of Fame Tournament. This organization will receive money from Phoneraiser for each item collected during this fundraiser. Phoneraiser is a company that specializes in recycling and refurbishing used technology.

Texas Heat is a 12 and under select baseball team from Blanco and Johnson City. Donations of your unwanted cell phones and cartridges can mean support for our team. Texas Heat has been selected to play at COOPERSTOWN DREAMS PARK in the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame Invitational Tournament during the week of July 18th. This is a golden opportunity for these young men to be able to play in a week long tournament. The team will also get to tour the Cooperstown Hall of Fame, see a game at Doubleday Field and meet other teams from around the world.

Your donation will also help to protect the environment. Your unwanted cell phones and inkjet cartridges will be recycled in accordance with EPA regulations or refurbished and reused. Phoneraiser makes your un-needed technology available to those who can use it, while keeping it out of the landfill. If improperly disposed of, the cell phone can pollute up to 132,000 liters of drinking water.

All cell phones and inkjet cartridges are accepted. Please donate at the following locations: Super S Food Stores, Blanco Hydro Gas Co., Inc., Johnson City Hydro Gas Co., Inc., Cattleman’s National Bank, Blanco National Bank, Johnson City Bank, PEC Corp. Office, and Advantage Copier.
