With donations from the staff at VoiceNation, active-duty military members and veterans will receive a total of 5,235 free cell phone minutes and 19 gently-used cell phones to help them connect with their families.
VoiceNation, a preferred call center partner for thousands of businesses nationwide, recently participated in the Cell Phones for Soldiers Recycling Program within their organization in an effort to support troops and keep cell phone waste out of landfills.
According to the Cell Phones for Soldiers’ fact sheet, “An estimated 100 to 130 million cell phones are no longer being used, many languishing in storage. Recycling cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions, keeps valuable material out of landfills and incinerators, and conserves natural resources.”
Dedicated to Making a Difference through Outreach and Environmental Preservation
VoiceNation is dedicated to making a difference in the world. Their purpose, “To make the world a better place for those in it” is exemplified by the steps they take towards changing lives by helping others in the community and around the globe through specific volunteer initiatives such as collecting and donating cell phones to military members.
Emphasizing that every action matters in the lives of others, VoiceNation provides a rich work environment and a company culture that encourages staff to get involved and take time to volunteer. In addition to outreach efforts in the local homeless community, VoiceNation gives outreach support to children living in local foster care facilities; recruitment campaigns with Goodwill of North Georgia Oakwood Career Center geared towards helping those greatly affected by hard economic times; and the global clean water initiatives of Voice4Nations.
Over the years, VoiceNation has taken a number of steps to demonstrate their dedication to environmental protection including: incorporating a paperless billing system; launching ambitious recycling programs; switching to energy efficient bulbs; installing motion sensor lighting; purchasing green office supplies and donating computers to homeless shelters to ensure they don’t end up in landfills.
