“Phil and the staff treat you like friends and provide assistance with a smile. Whether it’s a simple oil change or a catastrophic failure of your vehicles mechanical system Middleton Auto Repair will treat you right!”Norm – Middleton, MA
“There were noises coming from my car when it reached certain speeds, when I had taken it to another shop, no problem was found. The problem continued, so I made an appointment here, as I thought it might be the transmission. After explaining the cars symptoms, Phil offered to drive with me so I could point out the noise to him. In just a few short minutes he had identified the problem and relieved my concerns. To my surprise it had nothing to do with the engine, but a problem with my tires. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that they offer a wide variety of services. I highly recommend this business because of their expertise knowledge and courtesy.”Joy S. – Middleton, MA
“I met Phil and his staff when I took my sons truck in for some work while he was on his way to Vancouver BC from Jacksonville FL. I got an immediate feeling of trust during that meeting and have been using his location ever since. The service and honesty has not waivered once. Recently Phil did a major overhaul of my 49 Chev pickup—got it humming, after a 3 yr “sit in the barn”. The cost was better than I expected and the only suprise [a positive one] was the additional “touches” he did to enhance the safety and operation of the 49.”George – Boxford, MA
“I highly recommend this business because of their expertise knowledge and courtesy.”Joy – Middleton, MA
“I feared on such an old car it would be very expensive. I was ecstatic to receive a bill for just over $300.00.”Joe – Peabody, MA

Cell Phones For Soldiers
About Cell Phones For Soldiers
Cell Phones For Soldiers was founded by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist of Norwell, Mass., at the ages of 12 and 13. Since 2004, Cell Phones For Soldiers has provided free communication services to active-duty military members and veterans. The charity works with volunteers across the country to collect and recycle cell phones to benefit military members. The proceeds from recycling the phones are used to fund the charity’s two programs, Minutes That Matter and Helping Heroes Home.
Minutes That Matter, the charity’s long-standing program, provides free calling cards to servicemen and women. Since 2004, the charity has provided more than 210 million minutes of free talk time for troops and veterans. Calling cards can be requested from the charity’s website, cellphonesforsoldiers.com.
The newest program, Helping Heroes Home, was created July 2012 to aid veterans with emergency financial assistance. The program assists with one-time emergency needs such as providing a cell phone and service; computer and internet; paying for rent to avoid eviction; imperative car repairs; and more. Veterans in need of assistance can apply online at cellphoensforsoldiers.com.
Questions & Answers
- Q: Is Cell Phones For Soldiers a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization?
- Absolutely. Their 501(c)(3) tax exemption letter may be viewed by clicking here.
- Q: May I drop off any type of cell phone?
- Yes, you can drop off any and all types of cell phones from any carrier at Middleton Transmission & Auto Repair. Gently-used and newer phones are most desired, however, proceeds are still generated from the recycling of broken and dated telephones. Chargers and accessories are not required to donate. Instruction manuals are not necessary and should not be dropped off.
- Q: How do I donate a cell phone?
- All donations can be dropped off at Middleton Transmission & Auto Repair during regular business hours.
- Q: What happens with cell phones donated at Middleton Transmission & Auto Repair?
- All cell phones dropped off at Middleton Transmission & Auto Repair are shipped to Cell Phones for Soldiers and are sold either to an electronic refurbisher or a recycler. When received, a donated cell phone is quickly wiped of all personal information and inspected to see if it is repairable. A cell phone that is repairable is sold to an electronic refurbisher who will repair the device and resell it in the aftermarket. However, cell phones that are either too old or completely broken are sold to recyclers who strip the devices of any salvageable components and/or rare metals and then responsibly recycle the remaining parts. The proceeds from the phones are used to purchase prepaid international calling cards for troops and provide emergency financial assistance to veterans.
- Q: Is there a way I can erase my personal data BEFORE the phone is dropped off at Middleton Transmission & Auto Repair and shipped to Cell Phones For Soldiers?
- Yes. If your cell phone has a SIM card please remove it prior to dropping it off at Middleton Transmission & Auto Repair. You can also search the internet for “factory reset” and your specific make and model of your phone for instructions on wiping all personal information.
- Q: Does Cell Phones For Soldiers send the donated cell phones to America’s troops?
- No. It is a common misnomer that Cell Phones For Soldiers sends donated cell phones directly to deployed troops. Why is this not a viable option? First and foremost, cell phones can be security hazards for military members in combat zones. Also, the cost of international phone calls using a cell phone is very high, making this option extremely cost prohibitive. In addition, a majority of the cell phones received by the charity do not have international calling capabilities.
- Q: Can I request a calling card for a specific military member or unit?
- Yes. By providing a valid APO address, Cell Phones For Soldiers can directly mail or email cards to troops.Calling cards can be requested here.
- Q: May I make a monetary donation instead of dropping it off at Middleton Transmission & Auto Repair?
- Online monetary donations can be made here. You may send a check or money order directly to:
