Verizon in Our Communities

At Verizon Pennsylvania, we believe deeply in the power of communications to change people's lives for the better. We are 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 are 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 Pennsylvania use technology to improve education, address the environmental footprint and help underserved communities and individuals use technology to address healthcare needs.
