Much like with computers, it seems after you buy a cellular phone, a better model comes out the following week. Instead of throwing out your out-dated cell phone, a chain of wireless stores in Iowa is collecting them, with the proceeds going to charity.Midwest Wireless spokesperson Shelly John, who works in the Grinnell office. says the “Phones for Funds” program is now underway, where those old phones are being collected in bulk. They’ll then be sold to companies that purchase them in bulk.While Goodwill Industries is the benefactor for the Grinnell store, John says many other charities will benefit from the program in each Iowa city that has one of the outlet stores. The program will run through February of next year.
