Verizon HopeLine Program Donates $7500

Through its HopeLine Program, Verizon Wireless has donated $7500 to Family Shelter Service for case management services. The check presentation was made on Monday, June 22, at Family Shelter Service’s Downers Grove shelter.

Since 2001, HopeLine has collected more than 11.4 million wireless phones, awarded more than $29 million in cash grants to domestic violence organizations and distributed more than 190,000 phones to survivors of domestic violence.

Family Shelter Service board member Harrison Mayfield, Director – Global Field Operations, Verizon Wireline Network, was instrumental in securing the grant. “We were fortunate to be able to tap into the resources of the HopeLine as a way of making sure that we are giving back to the community,” Mayfield said.

Family Shelter Service is extremely grateful to Verizon Wireless for its commitment to help people in our communities who are trapped by domestic violence.
