Following Hurricane Ida, V Teamers need your help

With Hurricane Ida causing severe damage, power outages and flooding in the Southern U.S., V Teamers need your help more than ever before. 

Plus, in the western U.S, the drought and record heat have ignited more than 30,000 fires across 12 states, scorching 1.4 million acres, forcing many from their homes. 

As V Teamers, we always run to crises to help these communities. When our teammates are impacted by these disasters, you’re there to help too, through the VtoV Employee Relief Fund. With fires, floods, and hurricanes bearing down, V Teamers need your help now.

Help your colleagues when they need it most.

Giving is easy, and even more appreciated than you can imagine.

  • You can give via payroll deduction or credit card.
  • You can give once or ongoing per pay period.
  • Donations can be a little as $1 a month
  • Your donation qualifies for company matching

100% of your donation is tax-deductible and will go to help a fellow member of the Verizon family who needs it.

About VtoV

The VtoV Employee Relief Fund is Verizon’s charity funded by donations from Verizon employees. If an employee is unable to gain access to, or live in, their primary residence due to a catastrophic event, VtoV provides approved applicants with grants for qualified personal expenses (food, shelter, clothing, etc.). Since its inception, we have been able to help over 3,200 employees in their time of need.

In your time of need

We hope you never need it, but we know life is full of unexpected events. Regardless of whether you give to the fund, if you need it, VtoV helps employees when they’re displaced from their homes as a result of a personal disaster, such as fire, flood, hurricane or as a result of domestic violence. If that’s you, you can apply online for assistance.

Thank you for giving to the VtoV Employee program.
