This fall, the Fox Valley Gators Youth Football and Cheerleading League continued their support for HopeLine® from Verizon for the second year. Throughout the season, the team held HopeLine phone drives at each home game and collected more than 800 no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries and accessories to help support domestic violence prevention.

In honor of their community service and dedication throughout the season, on Monday, Nov. 12 the Verizon Wireless HopeLine program made a special $1,500 donation to Mutual Ground, an Aurora-based domestic violence prevention agency.

Chicago Bears tackle, Jonathan Scott, made a surprise appearance at the event, helped present the check and spent time signing autographs and talking to the kids.
