On November 9, Verizon Wireless hosted an event and donated $5,000 through the HopeLine program to Resources for Children with Special Needs (RCSN). RCSN was selected to receive the donation because of the outstanding services they provide to children, youth, and families who are victims of domestic violence. Rachel Howard and Judith Sussman from RCSN attended on behalf of the organization. The check was presented by Chris Snee, Guard for the New York Giants, who then signed autographs and took pictures with the attendees. The event was held at the Bryant Park Communications Store in New York City.
