Donate Pre-Paid Calling Cards
A phone call from home can boost a service member’s morale and assure family members that everything is going well.
VFW Operation Uplink, a project of Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), provides calling cards and hosts free call days to deployed service members. Anyone can also donate pre-paid calling cards to the Department of Defense Military Exchanges; the cards are then sold to troops overseas. You can also donate your old cell phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers; the equipment is turned into millions of minutes on pre-paid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas.
