Donate your phone

Your wireless phone can be a lifeline for a survivor of domestic violence.

HopeLine collects no-longer used wireless phones, batteries, chargers and accessories in any condition from any service provider to benefit victims and survivors of domestic violence. Since its launch in 2001, we've made great progress. The successes belong to the survivors, and their stories of courage inspire us to continue our work.

Donate your phone.

Survivors of domestic violence typically can’t use their old mobile devices once they’ve left their abusers.  When you donate your phone to HopeLine, it’s turned into valuable financial support for domestic violence awareness and prevention initiatives. Here are four simple steps to make a donation:

  1. Erase any data from the phone and disconnect the phone’s service with your wireless provider.
  2. Remove any storage cards and SIM cards from the phone. We thoroughly refurbish donated phones.
  3. Place your wireless phone from any service provider along with the battery, charger and any accessories you wish to donate in a plastic bag. Find a Verizon Wireless retail store near you to drop your wireless phone and accessories in a HopeLine bin.
  4. Don’t have time to go to a store? Pack your wireless phone, battery, charger and accessories in a secure package. Request your prepaid mailing label and just drop it in the mail.

Host a phone drive.

We are currently reworking our phone collection program and, for the meantime, are pausing on doing special phone drives. We hope to share more details very soon.
