Through HopeLine, Verizon Wireless has donated $7,500 to Resources for Children with Special Needs. RCSN works with New York families throughout the five boroughs who have children with disabilities and other special needs to help them understand, navigate, and access the services needed to ensure that all children have the opportunity to develop their full potential.

"We are very grateful for the grant from HopeLine from Verizon," said Rachel Howard, Executive Director of RCSN. "It will allow us to expand our current educational programs and ensure that more NYC families affected by domestic violence have the chance to heal and grow together."

In 2001 Verizon started  using recycled cell phones to help victims of domestic violence and since its beginning they have collected over 8 million phones and awarded more than $10 million in grants to agencies and organizations to help bring about awareness and support to victims of domestic violence. We the people can now help to bring about a change.

The next time you go in to upgrade your device remember to donate your phone to the HopeLine.  Also if you know anyone looking to get a program or business started that has been a victim of domestic violence, Verizon is giving Entrepreneurship Grants to help. The grants range from $1000 to $5000 and can be used for virtually anything to launch a business, from office equipment to tuition for business courses.
