Do You Have A Cell Phone To Spare?
Community Victim Services at Haven Society in Nanaimo provides used cell phones to women fleeing abusive relationships. These cell phones are donated by the community, and are used to make emergency 911 calls only. These phones have been instrumental in saving the lives of many women in Nanaimo, and we are currently in need of donated cell phones.
Used cell phones can be dropped off at our Community Services Building located at 2270 Labieux Road. Thank you for your continued support, and for helping us make a difference in the lives of women and children fleeing domestic abuse.
