Verizon9s HopeLine

Women Helping Women

Bring your old cell phones for donation to the AWT event to support Verizon Wireless9 Hopeline Program. Verizon Wireless’ HopeLine program puts the nation’s most reliable wireless network to work in our communities by turning unused wireless phones into support for victims of domestic violence. Verizon Wireless collects no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries and accessories in any condition from any wireless service provider at our Communications Stores nationwide. Phones that can be refurbished are sold for reuse and those without value are disposed of in an environmentally sound way. Proceeds from the HopeLine program are used to provide wireless phones and cash grants to local shelters and non-profit organizations that focus on domestic violence prevention and awareness.

Women Helping Women is to provide professional business apparel, image consulting and employment search support to aid low-income women in attaining and sustaining employment.
