VALDOSTA -- Your old cell phone could save a woman's life.

The Haven Battered Women's Shelter Inc. is collecting cell phones that are in working condition so its clients can always have a way to call for help in case of an emergency, said Mandy Rowe, executive director of The Haven.

Rowe said it is important for The Haven's clients to have a cell phone so they can always call 911 even if it isn't connected with a service provider.

"It gives them a sense of safety," Rowe said.

"They may not be able to afford a home phone or a cell phone, but at least with a donated phone they have the piece of mind that they can call 911."

Rowe said that people can call the Haven at 241-7047 if they are interested in donating a cell phone.
