Jersey City, NJ – Josephs Florist, located at 3662 Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City, has announced they will be accepting used cell phones and printer cartridges for recycling. The phones and cartridges will be recycled and the proceeds donated to Sylvias Children, a 501(c)3 organization that supports children at a primary school in Uganda.

The charity, founded by Monmouth County, NJ resident Sylvia Allen, has made significant improvements at the school, which has a current enrollment of 1,002 students. Nearly a quarter of the student population is orphaned due to the AIDS crisis, and Sylvias Children helps to house, clothe, feed and educate those children, in addition to improving the lives of the entire student population.

The recycling program is the brainchild of a Monmouth County high school student who volunteers with the charity. Old cell phones and printer cartridges can be dropped off in the collection box that will be located inside the floral shop.

Josephs Florist has been in business since 1968 and delivers to all of Hudson County and parts of Bergen County. For more information or directions to the store, call 201-792-1065 or visit
