In addition, during Sunday’s game the Packers and Verizon Wireless will team up to host a wireless phone drive in support of domestic violence victims. The drive is a part of Verizon’s HopeLine® program, which collects no-longer-used cell phones and distributes them to survivors of domestic violence.
All fans attending the game are invited to donate their no-longer-used cell phones and accessories from any wireless provider. Volunteers will be accepting donated phones and equipment at each of the six Lambeau Field entrances from 10 a.m. until game time at noon. For each phone collected, Verizon Wireless will contribute $10 to House of Hope, an organization in Green Bay that helps victims of domestic violence.
