FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons fans, especially those of you who are getting new cell phones for Christmas, you can help out a really cool program.
Verizon Wireless will be hosting a HopeLine phone drive on Falcons Landing out in front of the Georgia Dome prior to Monday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
HopeLine from Verizon collects no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries and accessories in any condition from any wireless service provider. The phones are then refurbished and provided to local domestic violence organizations or local government and law enforcement agencies for use with their domestic violence clients.
Wireless phones and technology can serve as a vital link to emergency or support services in a time of crisis or as a reliable, safe connection to employers, family and friends as survivors rebuild their lives.
