AAPDEP Cell Phone Drive - Donate your old/used cell phone

Announcing the kick-off of a cell phone drive to benefit The All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project (AAPDEP) and the environment you live in!

Come donate your used cell phones to be reused or recycled. For each cell phone donation, you will support AAPDEP in our effort to build community garden projects in St. Petersburg, Houston, and Washington D.C. and an infant and maternal mortality clinic in Sierra Leone.

Many Africans suffer from food insecurity in the US. The gardens are a community led effort to build self sufficiency and a sustainable option as food prices skyrocket. The rate of maternal mortality in Sierra Leone is reported to be 1 in 8 women, however, based on AAPDEP's discussions with the women on the ground, the true rate is 3 in 5!!

Your donation will serve as a triple threat!! You will be contributing to a better environment, helping Africans in the US have access to wholesome fruits and vegetables, and supporting the women of Sierra Leone to reduce the level of infant and maternal mortality! What could be better than helping to improve society and the environment in one simple gesture! So come on out during the month of April and bring those cell phones collecting dust in your shelves and drawers!!
