Established in 1995, the HopeLine® program accepts no-longer used wireless phones and accessories from any wireless service provider and turns them into help and support for victims of domestic violence and the non-profit agencies and shelters that serve them. Since the national recycling program began in 2001, Verizon Wireless has collected more than nine million phones and donated more than $14.2 million to local domestic violence agencies nationwide.
