Join a Committee or Task Force

Most groups meet monthly in Wilmington or Dover, and usually offer an opportunity to call in if you’re unable to attend in person.

Hold a Cell Phone Drive

Groups including churches, sororities, civic groups, college classes and honor societies, and workplaces have raised thousands of dollars for DCADV over the years through our partnership with a company called Shelter Alliance. They recycle and refurbish used cell phones, which earn up to $30 each. The unrestricted funds collected for DCADV by these groups is greatly appreciated.

DCADV staff can provide you with a variety of sample and template materials to help you plan your cell phone drive. Whether you are soliciting only members of the group (i.e. church congregation, colleagues, club members - called an "internal drive") to donate their own used phones, or coordinating members of the group to solicit others (i.e. customers, their friends and family, the local community - called an "external drive"), DCADV is here to help you. Learn how to hold an internal cell phone drive,

If you’re interested in holding a cell phone drive, please review the above document, register with Shelter Alliance, and contact us to let us know of your efforts and with any questions.
