CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina community is working to make it easier for troops to call home.

Four Charleston County parks this week began collecting old cellphones for the Cell Phones for Soldiers program.

The phones are being collected through the end of August. They are exchanged for pre-paid calling cards which are given to the troops. Both working and non-working phones from any provider are being collected.

For each device valued at $5, the troops get two-and-a-half hours of free talk time.

Cell Phones for Soldiers has provided more than 2.5 million calling cards for the troops in the past decade.
