CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Child Advocacy Network, a nonprofit agency serving West Virginia families whose lives have been touched by domestic violence, has received a $15,000 grant from Verizon’s HopeLine program to expand its work throughout West Virginia.

The HopeLine program collects no longer used wireless phones, batteries and accessories from any wireless carrier. Phones that can be refurbished are sold for reuse and those without value are disposed of in an environmentally sound way. Proceeds from the program are used to provide wireless phones and cash grants to local shelters and non-profit organizations that focus on domestic violence prevention and awareness.

HopeLine phone donations are accepted at all Verizon stores across the nation. For more information about HopeLine, visit https://www.verizon.com/about/responsibility/domestic-violence-prevention.
