Volunteer! Volunteer! Volunteer!

I am seeking coalition members dedicated to helping sustain the work that we do.

Be part of a collaborative team to address our 501c3 status. Do not worry about how much or how little knowledge you have about nonprofits. Join us with your energy and enthusiasm to make decisions about what should happen next and to help with the process.

Please email Jacob at if you are interested. Everyone who volunteers will be asked to participate in special meetings over the next month or so. We will try to accommodate everyone's schedule and appreciate any commitment - great or small.

Participate in the SLADVC's Cell Phone Drives

Did you know that we participate with two agencies that recycle old cellular telephones and help support the important work that we do?

911 Cell Phone Bank will refurbish old phones and return them to our community as 911 phones. This is an important resource for the victims and survivors we work with.

Shelter Alliance

SLADVC earns money from Shelter Alliance for every phone recycled through their program.

Help do your part as a coalition member. Visit the sites above, create donation boxes and collect cellular telephones. Bring your collection to coalition meetings or contact Jacob to ship the donation yourself.
