    I have 3 old (needless to say!) flip phones. In the past, I've donated cell phones to the women's shelter. Do you still accept these now? Thank you Laurel Phelps-Bowman

    My senior cooperative in Rochester has a small library and we get a lot of books donated. We are wondering if you would like some of our excess books. Maybe 2 boxes or so.
