Are you looking for a way to reuse and recycle this Earth Day AND help victims of domestic violence? Look no further: the hotline has partnered with HopeLine from Verizon, a program
that accepts no-longer-used wireless phones and accessories and turns them into lifelines for victims. Through HopeLine, Verizon has donated hundreds of thousands of phones and awarded millions of dollars in cash grants to partner agencies.
HopeLine phones are refurbished phones that are equipped with 3,000 anytime minutes of airtime and texting capabilities. Any wireless phone, regardless of manufacturer or service provider, can be accepted. The refurbished phones come with Verizon Wireless Nationwide Coverage, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, 3-Way Calling, Caller ID, Basic Voice Mail and texting. HopeLine phones are available to survivors affiliated with participating domestic violence agencies.
For many victims and survivors of domestic violence, access to a wireless phone and voice mailbox can help them rebuild their lives and provide a safe way to communicate with friends, family, agency and shelter support staff, and current or prospective employers. If you would like to start a phone drive in your community on behalf of the hotline, just fill out your information and we will be in touch with you.
This Earth Day, join with Verizon and the hotline to reuse, recycle, and provide much needed support to victims of domestic violence!
