You may not know it but just in the past year the AT&T Pioneers led the collection of more than 50,000 pounds of food in a company wide food drive benefiting Share Our Strength.
We are also part of a Cell Phone Recycling Campaign where we collected over 25,000 cell phones that helped support Cell Phones for Soldiers.

4. Cell Phones for Soldiers
Your continued support of recycling your unwanted cell phones supports our soldiers serving overseas.

Midland Ave, Paramus with the box in the lobby.
5. Recycle for Sight
In just about any dresser drawer, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person’s life. The Pioneers continue our partnership with local Lions Clubs to recycle used prescription, reading and sunglasses and plastic/metal frames. Children’s glasses are especially needed. If you have used eyeglasses you no longer need you can donate them at the Pioneer Gift Shop in Bedminster, the Pioneer Store in Middletown, or by contacting the Project Leaders below.
