The idGROUP and our friends in the community helped collect 17 cell phones, 23 power cords and a few other accessories for Verizon HopeLine for this worthy cause. Thanks to everyone who contributed and helped make an effort to put an end to domestic violence!

About Hopeline: Wireless phones and technology can serve as a vital link to emergency or support services in a time of crisis or as a reliable, safe connection to employers, family and friends as survivors rebuild their lives. HopeLine® from Verizon turns no-longer used cell phones into support for domestic violence victims and survivors.
