To celebrate the opening of our new Destination Store in Chicago, Verizon made a $250,000 donation to WINGS Metro, a new domestic violence shelter being built on Chicago’s south side. The grant was made possible through the Verizon HopeLine® program, which provides funds and support to domestic violence prevention and service programs throughout the country.
To further extend our support and involve holiday shoppers, we will provide additional funding to WINGS through an in-store and social giving program. From now through December 1, Verizon HopeLine will donate an additional $5 to WINGS for every new line activated at the Michigan Avenue Destination Store. Additionally, for every message of hope for victims of domestic violence posted on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #VoicesHavePower, we’ll donate an additional $1 to WINGS. The program will culminate in a final donation to be provided on “Giving Tuesday,” December 2.
In lending your voice of support, you can help change these statistics for the better.
