Donate old cell phone to help Women in Distress, get a free wrap from Pollo Tropical!

On Tuesday, March 1 you can help Women In Distress break their record of collecting 2,000 used cell phones for reprogramming and get a free Pollo Tropical Shrimp Quesadilla Wrap or Chicken Quesadilla Wrap!

For the second year in a row, Women In Distress has teamed up with Pollo Tropical for the Helping Handhelds Campaign.

Last year, the one-day promotion collected more than 2,000 cell phones. The used mobile phones will be refurbished and programmed to dial 911, so those in distress may receive the emergency care needed.

Phones donated do not have to be operational, and all makes and models are accepted. People are urged to drop their used cell phones in the donation bin at the Pollo Tropical counter, and then simply let the cashier know if they would like a free Shrimp Quesadilla Wrap or Chicken Quesadilla Wrap. One wrap for each phone donated. Donate five phones and enjoy five wraps!

The offer is valid all day, only on March 1.

“The Helping Handhelds Campaign is an easy and delicious way for the community to help a great cause,” Kim Miller, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Pollo Tropical said in a statement. “Last year, Pollo Tropical fans helped collect 2,000 phones in one day, a record number for Women In Distress. We hope to raise even more phones this year.”

Customers can get their hands on the new Shrimp Quesadilla Wrap that features marinated grilled shrimp, melted cheddar jack cheese, freshly-chopped tomatoes, and a tangy chipotle dressing - all on an 8-inch flatbread that is finished on the grill press. The Chicken Quesadilla Wrap features chopped citrus-marinated grilled chicken breast and all the delicious fillings that highlight the Shrimp Quesadilla Wrap.

Women In Distress is a nationally accredited, full service, domestic violence center. It has been serving domestic violence victims and their families for over three decades.
