With all the hoopla surrounding Rihanna and her abuser boyfriend, Chris Brown (and the fact that she used her cellphone to call her assistant who called police) recycling your old cellphone through Verizon Wireless’ HopeLine® program seems timely.
HopeLine collects old wireless phones, batteries and accessories in any condition from any wireless service provider. Proceeds from the 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.
Two convenient ways to donate a phone to HopeLine
- Drop off your phone at any Verizon Wireless Communications Store. Find the nearest store by visiting the Verizon Store Locator.
- Print out a Verizon Wireless Hopeline postage-paid label and adhere it to a box/envelope. Please be sure to review all shipping instructions carefully and include a return address on the label.
So, open the junk drawers, check in your closets and please let others know if they donate their old cell phones it can mean hope and new beginnings to a survivor of domestic violence.
