A local tax preparation company is doing their part to give back to our men and women serving overseas.
On Saturday, Liberty Tax Service hosted a Cell Phone for Soldiers Cell Phone Drive.
The phone collection program allows troops overseas to stay in touch with their loved ones for free.
We're told phone bills for service members overseas can cost thousands of dollars because calls can be as much as $15 per minute.
The cell phone drive is also doing some good for the environment because it will keep used phones and batteries out of landfills.
