We value our soldiers and salute the efforts and sacrifice they are making everyday to keep us, and our country safe. We keep them in our prayers and thoughts

First Fidelity Reserve announces its support for the Cell Phones for Soldiers program. This is a project that helps provide our military personnel with the ability to call home to their families while they are serving their country. The program was the brainstorm of two teenagers, Brittany and Robbie Bergquist from Norwell, MA. They were inspired after reading a story about a soldier running up a family's phone bill with a call he placed while in Iraq. Soon after reading the story Brittany and Robbie Bergquist started 'Cell Phone for Soldiers' with one clear goal—'to help connect our soldiers with their families while serving our country'.
Jason Whitney, president of First Fidelity Reserve, was immediately drawn to supporting the initiative and efforts of these teens. "We at First Fidelity Reserve are all about family. We recognize the importance of keeping family close and in touch with each other." Cell Phone for Soldiers does just this by collecting used cell phones to be recycled in return for Pre-Paid Calling Cards that are provided to our troops. Each recycled phone provides two phone cards. Everyday thousands of phone cards are distributed to soldiers overseas helping to connect them with their families. First Fidelity Reserve is a company familiar with the problems military personnel endure with staying connected to family because they have war veterans on their staff.
"We are very excited to be involved in helping to keep our soldiers connected to their loved ones," Whitney continues. "We are asking all visitors to our web site to join us in supporting our troops." Simply click on the Cell Phones for Soldiers link to the pre-paid mailing label and send in your retired cell phones to provide calling cards to our troops. "We value our soldiers and salute the efforts and sacrifice they are making everyday to keep us, and our country safe. We keep them in our prayers and thoughts," says Jason Whitney.
