Helping millions get back on
their feet

Unfortunately, 2018 brought natural disasters to many of the areas we serve. Our Credo tells us to run to a crisis, not away, and Verizon and our employees stepped forward in a variety of ways to help those who were victims of hurricanes, wildfires, floods, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Our employees helped millions of people impacted by these disasters get back on their feet. In total, Verizon donated more than $4.6 million to disaster recovery and community projects throughout the U.S., including $1 million to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Michael relief.

Verizon launched an Emergency Resource Center Hub, which provides updates on our response to everything from wildfires to earthquakes to hurricanes. This hub allows news media, local officials, employees and others to learn about our emergency response efforts. For current information on Verizon’s emergency response efforts, please visit our Emergency Resource Center.
