Verizon Wireless Joins With Virginia Attorney General To Recognize Innovative Domestic Violence Prevention Programs

Stocks in this article: VOD VZ

Verizon Wireless regional president Mike Maiorana commented, "We're proud to continue our longstanding partnership with Virginia's Office of the Attorney General and Virginia's Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, and recognize the important work being done in communities across the Commonwealth to improve response, enhance protections and help victims of domestic violence become survivors. Our ability to support important programs like this one depends on the continued generosity of people who chose to recycle their no-longer-used wireless devices through our HopeLine program."

HopeLine is Verizon Wireless' community service program which collects no longer used wireless handsets (all models, from all wireless carriers) and accessories to be refurbished, recycled and/or sold.  Proceeds benefit victims of domestic violence through grants and the donation of wireless phones and service.  Since HopeLine's recycling program was launched nationwide in 2001, Verizon Wireless has collected more than 9 million phones for recycling; kept more than 200 tons of electronics waste out of landfills; distributed nearly 123,000 HopeLine phones with the equivalent of more than 406 million minutes of wireless service for use by victims, survivors and organizations; and funded more than $14.2 million in cash grants for domestic violence prevention.
