I think this is a great thing these cell phone companies are doing to help out victims of domestic violence! Wireless Zone, a premier authorized retailer of Verizon Wireless, will donate $10 for every phone purchased at its stores in Evansville, Henderson and Owensboro on Saturday, February 18, as part of its regular, third-Saturday “Give Back Day” program. Verizon Wireless will add to the Wireless Zone donation by adding $10, up to a total donation of $5,000 to each organization.

The beneficiaries are Holly’s House in Evansville, OASIS in Owensboro and The Child Advocacy Center of Green River District in Henderson. With your help we can reduce the domestic violence problems we face is Kentucky & Southern Indiana.

Locations participating in the fundraising drive are:

Evansville:

  • Verizon Wireless, 2001 North Green River Road, 47714
  • Wireless Zone, 724 North Burkhardt Road, 47715
  • Wireless Zone, 800 North Green River Road, 47715

 

Henderson:

HopeLine from Verizon collects no-longer-used phones, batteries and accessories − in any condition from any carrier − and then refurbishes, sells or recycles the phones and donates the proceeds to domestic violence prevention and treatment organizations in the form of cash grants and prepaid Verizon Wireless phones for survivors. In 2011, Verizon Wireless donated $100,000 to such organizations in Kentucky alone.
