SYCAMORE – Eighth graders from team Great Expectations at Sycamore Middle School display old cell phones they have collected for Cell Phones for Soldiers, a not-for-profit company which sends them to a company that recycles them. The money raised by recycling the phones is used to purchase prepaid calling cards for soldiers stationed overseas. The collection of old cell phones will continue until the end of the school year. Phones can be dropped off at the middle school office.
