HopeLine From Verizon

Verizon is committed to supporting communities around the country by bringing people together through music and social issues, including domestic violence, an epidemic that impacts millions.  We are encouraging individuals who plan to attend the “Now  Playing” tour to take action against domestic violence by bringing no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries, chargers and accessories from any service provider to donate to HopeLine® from Verizon.
