Donate Used Cell Phones: (SPARCC)
SPARCC (Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center) collects used cell phones to help survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Donated cell phones are refurbished and programmed to serve as 911 phones to help those in crisis. Donations are accepted at SPARCC's Sarasota Outreach Office located at 2139 Main Street. Phones do not have to be in working order. If possible, please include chargers and clear phones of personal information.
