The Jaguars have again joined with corporate partners ALLTEL and Motorola, and The Wireless Foundation, to host a Donate a Phone campaign to benefit victims of domestic violence. Last year, more than 650 wireless phones were collected. Fans planning to attend Sunday's game against the Eagles are encouraged to donate used wireless phones at collection sites that will be set up outside the entrances to ALLTEL Stadium.
Jaguars CB Fernando Bryant, who volunteers with Jacksonville's Hubbard House, a shelter for battered women and their children, is serving as the Jaguars spokesman for the program, which provides refurbished wireless phones with preprogrammed numbers to victims of domestic violence, who can utilize the phones in emergency situations. A wireless phone often serves as an emergency lifeline and can provide a sense of security for children and families who are victims of domestic violence. As part of the program, Quigley House will receive 20 new wireless phones and airtime provided by ALLTEL. The Quigley House provides services to victims of domestic violence in the Clay County area.
Fans can also donate phones by calling 1-888-901-SAFE or by visiting www.donateaphone.com
