CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

More than 100 used cell phones are on their way to soldiers overseas.

It's part of the "Cell Phones for Soldiers" program.

Crain Funeral Homes of Cape Girardeau and southern Illinois have been collecting old cell phones.

They're then turned in to pre-paid calling minutes for service men and women.

"To think that one phone an be reconstituted and turned into two and a half hours of talk time for a soldier serving overseas is just incredible," said Bryan Crain. "So those 133 phones, that's something that's just unfathomable what it could mean."

One hundred thirty-three phones have been donated since Memorial Day. They'll be shipped out just in time for the Independence Day holiday.
