Sanibel, FL– Veterans & Family Memorial Care Provider, Messinger Mortuaries of Scottsdale, AZ collected over 2000 old cell phones, more than any other VFMC Provider pushing VFMC past their 2010 goal of providing our troops overseas with 1 MILLION FREE calling minutes. VFMC Providers are the Official Funeral Home drop off centers for Cell Phones for Soldiers, a 501c3 non-profit. In 2010 VFMC Providers nationwide collected 18,692 old cell phones which translates into 1,121,520 FREE calling minutes for our heroes overseas.

“On Nov. 16 we participated in another annual Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce Showcase event,” said Patricia Underhill of Messinger Mortuaries. “This brought together a hundred + number of exhibitors and hundreds of attendees. It is a major event in this town. This year we “themed” our presentation around the VFMC/CPFSprogram. Well, we could not have selected a better theme, because we walked off with the Best of Show Trophy for this year (the top prize.) And, the cell phones are still pouring in. This group of ours really networks the message!

Without the inspiration and dedication of Mark Davis and VFMC we may not have become recognized for this important level of community service. Wherever the message is presented, the response is immediate and amazing. This is especially true demographically in a metropolitan area that boasts a large number of active and retired military personnel. We are genuinely proud that our firm is a Veterans & Family Memorial Care Provider.”

“We’re asking Americans to support our troops by donating their old cell phones, providing families with a much-needed connection to their loved ones overseas,” says Mark Davis, founder of Veterans & Family Memorial Care and CEO of VFMC
