In October, challenged all of our readers to submit their old cell phones to the Verizon Wiresless’ HopeLine program. The long-running program collects no-longer-used phones and cell phone equipment to be refurbished and recycled. The refurbished phones are sold and the funds are used to provide wireless phones and airtime to domestic violence survivors. This year, Verizon Wireless was able to donate $100,000 to domestic violence organizations in Michigan.
