Best place to donate old working phones in GTHA?

Hey friends,

Where is the best place to donate old working android phones?
Was just gonna go and donate it to like a mission store, or value village but perhaps there is a better place?
Preferably somewhere where someone could actually use them?
Samsung S3 and Samsung S4 are the phones in case there is some requirements.

Any tips greatly appreciated.

Cheers

took a quick look and I can suggest the two below - you can also get a tax receipt for your used cellphone donations...

1. CNIB - Canadian National Institute for the Blind
Phone It Forward
Donate a smartphone. Change the life of someone who's blind.

With millions of smartphones gathering dust each year as users upgrade to newer models, Phone It Forward gives Canadians a unique opportunity to donate their old phones, receive a tax receipt, and empower people who are blind in the process.

Smartphones make a tremendous impact on the lives of people who are blind. Accessible smartphone apps make it possible to do all kinds of things that may have seemed challenging before.

Through a partnership with Fixt Wireless Repair, donated smartphones are wiped to the highest data security standards, loaded with accessible apps, and provided to people with sight loss who need them, along with technical training, discounted maintenance, and data plan support.

To donate your phone, or learn more about Phone it Forward, visit phoneitforward.ca or call 1-833-554-5020.

There was some fellow on RFD that would go to the Staples recycling bin to dumpster dive for these old phones. He did it to redeem it at Pizza Pizza during their Earth Day promo whereby you get a free slice for every recycle phone you give. He got several slices doing this...
Maybe donate yours to this RFD fellow...

Thanks guys, I just ended up selling them for 20 bucks and they went fast. Just got one more left for 10 bucks and I am considering selling it for 5 if the buyer doesn't come today. Cheers
