The Tampa Yankees have partnered with Cell Phones for Soldiers, a national nonprofit, to help collect cell phones to help our troops call home from overseas.
Newer or gently used cell phones from all service providers will be accepted at any of our Military Monday home games throughout the season, at our Bill Currie Ford Armed Forces Night on May 16th, and at our Everyday Heroes Night on July 4th. The proceeds from all donated cell phones are used to purchase calling cards for our troops. Fans who donate a new or gently used cell phone will receive a free ticket to our Monday, August 24th home game against the Dunedin Blue Jays at 7:00pm. Help us help our military and veterans. Your donation will truly make a difference and make you a hero to our nation’s heroes.
Founded in 2004 by Robbie and Brittany Bergquist, Cell Phones For Soldiers is dedicated to providing cost-free communication services to active-duty military members and veterans. In 2013, Cell Phones For Soldiers provided U.S. troops with more than 23 million “Minutes That Matter” talk time and distributed more than 380,000 prepaid international calling cards. Since 2004, the nonprofit has also recycled more than 11.3 million cell phones reducing the impact on landfills.
On Uncle Bob’s Self Storage Military Mondays, all military receive FREE admission with a valid military I.D. All fans can enjoy half price burgers and chicken tender baskets from 6:00pm-8:00pm. To see our full schedule for Monday Home Games please visit www.tybaseball.com
