DONATE YOUR CELL PHONE - Please help the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence with your donation of deactivated cell and wireless phones. These phones become important tools when provided to victims of domestic violence who may encounter emergency situations. They are programmed to only ring through to 911 and cannot be used for any other calls. The lifeline provided by donated phones has literally saved many lives. We will have a donation box in the foyer of Temple Beth El. This drive is ongoing and we will send the phones to NCADV throughout the year. Please erase all personal information from your phones. We do not need the charging cords, only the handsets. Thank you for contributing to this important and lifesaving cause. If you have any questions, contact Carrie Jacobs in our Temple Office 310-833-2467 orTBEOffice@bethelsp.org.
