Hope Rising Offers Collection Points for Verizon Wireless Hopeline Program

verizon hopelineHope Rising joins the nation in observing the month of October as Domestic Violence Awareness month.  As a part of that they have organized 10 collection points in the area for Verizon Wireless’s HopeLine Program to begin Oct. 1.

Wireless phones and technology serve as a vital link for all of us. They’re also an especially safe and reliable way for domestic violence victims and survivors to reach emergency or support services in times of crisis and stay connected with employers, family and friends.

HopeLine from Verizon accepts wireless phones and accessories in any condition from any carrier for reuse and recycling. The phones are then refurbished or recycled in an environmentally sound way. Refurbished phones – complete with 3,000 minutes of wireless service – are provided to local domestic violence organizations or local government and law enforcement agencies for use with their domestic violence clients.
