Unclaimed cellphones serve as lifelines to the needy
December 1, 2012|By Walter Pacheco, Orlando Sentinel
Instead of letting them languish in a lost-and-found bin, some Central Florida theme-park officials are turning unclaimed devices into lifelines for abused women and their families, as well as revenue generators for other local charities.

Carol Wick, CEO of Harbor House of Central Florida, said unclaimed smartphones donated to the shelter by Walt Disney and Universal Orlando are sold on eBay and Craigslist. They have generated about $50,000 annually for the women's shelter.

The funds from donated smartphones are used to pay for food, bus tickets to relocate people, medication and other items, Wick said. Older cellphones, such as the clamshell models, are given to women to keep in safe places as part of their emergency plans in case they need to call 911.

"It's a significant gift for what would have gone in the trash," Wick said.

Betty Lowery, the manager of community relations at Walt Disney World, said unclaimed devices are kept for 90 days to give their owners time to collect them at the several lost-and-found locations in the park.

After that period, the memory on the unclaimed cellphones, laptops and tablets is erased, she said.

"We've been donating devices for years, but in 2011, we decided to handle it in a more strategic way with more thoughtful donations," Lowery said. "Harbor House seemed a natural fit because some of those women leave their homes with only the clothes on their backs. These cellphones provide a lifeline for those women and children."

Tom Schroder of Universal Orlando said the theme park has donated more than 2,800 cellphones to the women's shelter. Starting this month, Sea World officials will also donate unclaimed cellphones to Harbor House, said spokesman Nick Gollattscheck.

Lowery said Disney also donates devices to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, United Way and other local charities.

Officials at HOPE Helps, an Oviedo organization that helps prevent homelessness through a food pantry and sales from its thrift store, in August received more than 200 unclaimed point-and-shoot cameras, digital cameras and video cameras from Disney.

The group's executive director, Joan Faulkner, said her staff was "blown away" by the large quantity of high-end cameras donated by the theme park.

"These were Canon, Sony, Olympus and Nikon cameras of all sizes and models," Faulkner said. "We were not only thankful for the items that were donated to us that would help fund those families in need we serve, but we also had a sense of loss for the individuals and families who had lost their personal belongings."

Faulkner said the group posted a picture of the cameras on its Facebook page before selling them in its thrift store. Most of the cameras were priced at $45, Faulkner said.

"They sold like crazy," she said. "It was one of our highest sales weeks of the year."
