The holidays are fast approaching and many of the men and women serving our country overseas may not be home for Thanksgiving or Christmas. But with your help, they may be able to make an additional phone call home or two.  Here's how you can help.

News 10 ABC is reporting that Sen. George Amedore partnered with the nonprofit Cell Phones for Soldiers and is asking people to donate unwanted mobile phones and tablets to the cause.  Proceeds will be used to buy long distance calling cards that will be used by servicemen and women who are stationed away from home.

Now through December 6th, you may drop off an unwanted phone or tablet to each of the following locations:
