Donate cell phone, get free Storm game tickets

Published:   |   Updated: May 7, 2014 at 01:06 PM

The Tampa Bay Storm is joining forces with nonprofit charity Cell Phones for Soldiers and asking fans to donate their gently used cellular phones.

With each donation, Storm fans can provide troops with funds for communicating with loved ones at home.

During May, fans can donate their phones at the box office at the Forum, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa, and will receive a ticket voucher to enjoy a Storm game for free in return.

Donated phones will be recycled or reconditioned and for every donated phone valued at $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers will be able to provide 2 1/2 hours of free talk time to deployed troops in need.

For more information, call (813) 301-6600 or visit http://tampabaystorm.com.
