Wireless Phone Drive To Be Held At Lambeau Field
Fans attending the Packers-Vikings game on Sunday, Nov. 1, are invited to donate no-longer-used wireless handsets and accessories from any wireless provider to benefit victims of domestic violence through the Verizon Wireless HopeLine® program.
Volunteers will be collecting donated phones and equipment at each of the five Lambeau Field entrances from 1 p.m. until game time at 3:15 p.m.
Through its award-winning HopeLine program, Verizon Wireless turns no-longer-used wireless phones into support for victims of domestic violence, including those in Wisconsin. Wireless phones, batteries and other accessories are collected at Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide and in special collections throughout the year. The phones are either refurbished for reuse or recycled in an environmentally sound way.
Since 2001, HopeLine's national phone recycling and reuse program has collected more than 6 million wireless phones and awarded more than $7 million in cash grants to domestic violence organizations throughout the country. In addition, more than 80,000 HopeLine phones with 240 million minutes of airtime have been donated to victims, survivors and domestic violence organizations.
Fans unable to attend the Nov. 1 game can still participate in the phone drive by donating their no-longer-used phones at any Verizon Wireless Communications Store at any time. To find the store closest to you, visit www.verizonwireless.com.
