The Denver Broncos have partnered with Verizon to help support survivors of domestic violence during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. Verizon's HopeLine Drive, a phone recycling program, encourages Broncos fans to donate used wireless phones and accessories in drop boxes located inside Broncos team stores at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and the UCHealth Training Center.
"We are proud to have support from the Denver Broncos and their fans for over a decade to help stop domestic violence," said Verizon Wireless Regional President, Chris Lewter. "Domestic violence is a hidden epidemic in the United States and it can have a devastating impact on individuals, families and our communities. Verizon is committed to ending domestic violence and using technologies to support survivors."
Since 2001, the HopeLine program has collected more than 11.4 million phones across the nation and raised more than $29 million in cash grants. All working and non-functioning wireless phones and accessories are accepted. Phones are either sold or refurbished to benefit local shelters and non-profit organizations centered on domestic violence awareness and prevention.
