Donating to Newhouse can be as simple as designating one amount to come from your checking, savings, or money market or we can charge your credit card (VISA, MasterCard & American Express) once a month. It takes a one time effort on your part and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that every month you help another woman and her children find a life free from violence.
Newhouse is an approved 501(c)3 not-for-profit Missouri corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which establishes policy.
How many old cell phones do you have in your junk drawer? Let Newhouse staff take those old phones off your hands. Newhouse works with Shelter Alliance to recycle cell phones you no longer need or want. Some phones are then refurbished and reprogrammed with 911 for domestic violence victims, others are sold for parts.
Newhouse receives $.50 to $35 for each phone collected. Your donation really helps! To date, Newhouse has raised more than $35,000 in cell phone donations. Newhouse also accepts all cell phone accessories (chargers, head sets, blue tooth, etc).
If you'd like to donate your cell phone, cell phone accessory or place a cell phone collection box at your office, church or facility, please email CommunityEng@newhouseshelter.org or call 816-474-6446, Ext. 225.
