NSDP program looks for gently-used smartphones

As part of their “Call It Forward” program, the Northern Society for Domestic Peace (NSDP) is looking for gently-used smartphones.

Currently the organization is looking for any iPhone (6+) or Android phones made in the last two years. The phones must be in usable condition, come with a charger and be unlocked.

NSDP administrator Britt White says that, for individuals experiencing domestic violence, sometimes having a phone makes all the difference.

“It’s a safety thing, right? So if you have access to a phone or a communication device, then you have access to call 911, you have access to … call for help if you need.”

White says that, currently, the program’s focus is finding phones and that once they have a considerable supply, the NSDP will be offering them to women at risk of domestic violence. She adds that there will be a referral process for the program.

Those interested in learning more about the program can reach the NSDP at (250)-847-9000 or by email at [email protected]

If you have a phone you’d like to donate, you can drop it off at the RCMP in Smithers.
