Lehman College Raises Awareness Of Dating Violence, Helps Environment With Verizon Wireless UHopeLine Program


Company Donates $1,000 to Student Programs Combating Violence.

BRONX, NY — (L-R) José Magdaleno, vice president of student affairs at Lehman College, Ruth Villalonga of the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence and Tony Idachaba of Verizon Wireless, teamed up last week to launch UHopeLine, an extension of the company’s exclusive HopeLine® wireless phone recycling program which places permanent collection points on college campuses. UHopeLine is designed to increase awareness of dating violence and encourage college students to help the environment by recycling no-longer-used wireless devices. In recognition of Lehman College’s participation, Verizon Wireless made a $1,000 donation to student programs aimed at combating relationship abuse. Championed by the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence, the City University of New York is the first university in New York State to host UHopeLine. The Lehman College collection point is one of eight UHopeLine bins placed at key locations on CUNY campuses throughout the City. For more information about HopeLine visit
