Donate Your Old Cell Phone!
You can also help by donating your old cell phone whenever you upgrade! Caring Unlimited is a partner with Shelter Alliance, an environmentally responsible, zero landfill cell phone recycling program. Caring Unlimited makes refurbished cell phones available to victims of domestic abuse, free of charge, so they can protect themselves by making 911 calls or contacting a hotline advocate 24 hours a day whenever needed.
Donate your Old Car to Caring Unlimited's Freedom Wheels Program
Freedom Wheels is Caring Unlimited’s car repair and donation program that operates in partnership with Kennebunk Auto. Freedom Wheels grew out of an awareness that families reorganizing their lives after leaving an abusive relationship cannot become economically independent without safe and reliable transportation. Many of the families with whom we work come to us with either no transportation or a vehicle that is uninspected, unreliable and/or unsafe. Economic independence is of paramount importance for families seeking to make a fresh start and establish safety and stability outside of the abusive relationship. Dependable, properly maintained vehicles are necessary in Maine in order for people to travel to work, school, appointments and to ferry children to and from their activities. Since January 2006, 232 families have directly benefited from this program including 175 families whose cars were repaired and 57 others who received vehicles donated by generous community members.
