At Verizon Florida, we believe deeply in the power of communications to change people's lives for the better. We're committed to bringing the benefits of our technology to as many places as we can, in a way that respects the rich diversity of our customers. We're building on a legacy of service that goes back more than a century. Our employees are continuing that commitment, serving millions of customers every day on the job and contributing their own time to the well-being of the communities where we live and work.
Our work is done through strategic partnerships with nonprofits, through informed grant-making that represents an investment in results, and through the exceptional volunteer spirit of Verizon's employees. Our goal is to help the people of Florida achieve the skills they need to live, learn and work in the 21st Century.
We focus our efforts on the following core initiatives:

He was also awarded the Florida Region President’s Pin by Jeanmarie Milla, Verizon’s Florida region president. [ Learn More ]
