Verizon HopeLine: Going Purple

With October just around the corner, we are going
 purple in support of 
Domestic Violence Awareness Month 

HopeLine is an awared winning
 phone recycling program through 
Verizon to help victims and survivors 
of domestic violence. Phones, chargers and batteries from 
any carrier and in any condition
are refurbished or recycled and then donated to non-profit
 organizations and agencies that support victims and 
survivors of domestic violence. Often times, survivors and
 victims are left without phones when they leave their abusers;
by donating a phone they are provided a new lifeline
to contact friends, family, employers and shelter
 support staff so they can rebuild their lives.

Get involved!

Donate your device:

Survivors can rarely access their old mobile
device once they have left an abuser. When you donate your
old device, it's refurbished into a valuable source of
support for domestic violence awareness and prevention.
To make a donation:

1.  Erase any data from the phone and disconnect the phone’s 

service with your wireless provider.

2. Remove any storage cards and SIM cards from the phone. 

We thoroughly refurbish donated phones.

3. Place your wireless phone from any service provider along with the battery,

 charger and any accessories you wish to donate in a plastic bag. 
4. Find a Verizon Wireless retail store near you to drop your wireless 
phone and accessories in a HopeLine bin.
5.  Don’t have time to go to a store? Pack your wireless phone, 
battery, charger and accessories in a secure package. Print out our 
pre-paid mailing label and just drop in the mail.

Host a Phone Drive:

1. Select the dates and location for your drive. 
Be sure to plan for the length of your collection when you do so.
2. Get free HopeLine materials to promote and host your drive.
 Mail your request with the dates you've planned and we'll send you the materials.
3. Place the collection boxes in visible but secure locations. 
Move collections to a storage area as needed.
4. Pack your collected phones, batteries and accessories securely
 for shipment. Request mailing labels for special collections
 and ship your phones using the label provided.
