What are some other ways that donated devices are upcycled for agency partners?
• A device was requested to assist a Florida police department that needed a replacement screen for a phone that a suspect intentionally damaged before being arrested.
• Video games, iPads, and iPods have been provided to shelters for children of abuse victims to play with while the parent gets help.
• We have provided women’s health organizations with cell phones to distribute to patients for upcoming doctor appointments.
• Many educational institutions have advanced mobile app development and programming classes as part of their curriculum. Testing these apps on a personal phone can present difficulties for students, teachers, and schools. Many teachers have taken advantage of our program to receive Android devices that can be used as test phones for student apps. Devices are then sent back to the 911 Cell Phone Bank for mindful recycling.
