BOISE, ID — Verizon Wireless and the Boise State Broncos are teaming up again this year to help curb domestic violence. Fans attending the Broncos home games on October 14th and November 3rd & 17th are invited to donate used wireless phones and accessories to benefit victims of domestic violence through the Verizon Wireless HopeLine® program. HopeLine drop boxes will be located at a Verizon Wireless tent in front of the Varsity Center (at the south end of the stadium) prior to the home games.

Through the Verizon Wireless HopeLine program, used wireless phones, batteries and accessories from any service provider are recycled, or refurbished and sold. Verizon Wireless uses the proceeds to award grants and to donate wireless phones with prepaid airtime to local shelters and non-profit organizations to aid survivors of domestic violence.

“Verizon Wireless is pleased to partner for the third year in a row with the Boise State Broncos to have HopeLine made part of the game day activities,” said Melanie Braidich, regional president for Verizon Wireless. “We encourage Broncos fans to donate their no longer needed wireless phones and accessories to help us provide a HopeLine to victims of domestic violence, an epidemic that affects one in three American women during their lifetime.”

Wireless phones and equipment can be donated to the HopeLine program year-round at any Verizon Wireless Communications Store across the country. For more information, visit
