Metro is hosting a system-wide collection day for the George Washington University’s GW+Phones=Hope campaign. Donate your used cell phones and other portable electronic devices (digital cameras, iPods, laptops). The devices will be recycled and the proceeds will fund maternal and child health mobile technology projects in Mali, Malawi and Nepal.

You can donate your used cell phone and portable electronic devices on Wednesday, April 25th from 7:00 AM-9:30 AM at 15 busy Metro stops. Donation boxes will be located at the entrances/exits of the following stations:

• Capital South
• Dupont Circle
• Farragut North
• Farragut West
• Federal Triangle
• Foggy Bottom
• Franconia-Springfield
• Gallery Place-Chinatown
• L’Enfant Plaza
• McPherson Square
• Metro Center
• New Carrollton
• Pentagon City
• Rosslyn
• Union Station

For more information, please refer to the GW+Phones=Hope webpage.

  • If someone’s not watching these boxes, they are going to get swiped *so fast.*

    People have been “donating” their cell phones and other portable electronic devices at Metro stations for some time now.

      But no one will sucker punch you for the phone- you now have the convenience of putting it in the box!
