There's a way to give back to service members away from their families on this Independence Day.
AT&T's Cell Phones for Soldiers drive is under way right now and if you have an unused phone lying around or you are due for an upgrade, you can make a difference. All you have to do is take your phone to an AT & T store where you will be able to donate the value of the phone to the program which helps troops call home by turning the money for the phones into prepaid calling cards.
"Most of our cells phones that come in if they are an older type device," explained AT & T's Kimberly Zimmerman. "You're getting $20 to $30 on a trade in value and that's a small contribution they can make to our service men and women that are overseas.
AT & T will collect phones today through Friday.
