A kick in the gut.

V Teamer deals with losing his home and beloved dog to a fire. Learn how VtoV helped.

A kick in the gut.

For Eric Robinson, a facilities technician in Dover, NJ, this past Thanksgiving is one he will never forget. While enjoying dinner at his father’s house in South Jersey, he received a phone call telling him his family’s home was on fire.

VtoV helped Eric’s family get back on their feet quickly, as all they had left were two cars and the clothes on their backs. Help keep the VtoV Employee Relief Fund strong by donating today. Every dollar counts to ensure we’re ready to aid a V Teamer during their time of need.

And, we’ve got a behind the scenes look at a switch, the brains of our network where millions of calls and data connections go through. There are power back-ups and redundancies, so in the case of an emergency, this switch will remain up so first responders and customers stay connected. Kate Jay has the story from Charlotte, NC.

It’s all on today’s Up To Speed, the best place for everything happening around and inside Verizon.
