Please consider donating your used, retired cell phone to CWAV Society. Phones in good working order with chargers can be used, even if not on a payment plan, for emergency 911 calls and are often a critical safety tool for women fleeing domestic violence. Phones can be dropped off at CWAVS offices located at 246 Evans Street, Duncan.
