The Alumni Federation and Verizon Wireless Partner To Help End Domestic Violence

The NVCC Alumni Federation is partnering with Verizon Wireless this year to help end domestic violence. HopeLine® from Verizon Wireless helps support victims and survivors of domestic violence while ensuring that phones are reused or recycled in an environmentally responsible way. Anyone can donate no-longer-used phones (from any provider), batteries and accessories to HopeLine; Verizon then uses the proceeds from these donations to provide cash grants to domestic violence organizations across the United States.

How You Can Help

Since HopeLine became a national recycling program in 2001, it has collected more than 9 million phones, granted more than $14.2 million in cash to organizations across the country and provided more than 123,000 phones for use by domestic violence victims. But there’s still work to be done. From December 2nd through December 20th, donate your old phones, batteries and accessories, and drop them off at a collection box located at the following NOVA locations:

  • Annandale Campus Counseling office – CA Building and the Annandale campus Library
  • Medical Education Campus Student Life office – Suite 140 and the Student Services office, Room 202
  • Woodbridge Campus – WC Building, 2nd Floor, Information Desk and WC Building, first floor, Student Activities office
  • NVCC Educational Foundation Office – Pitney Bowes Building (NW), Suite 817
  • NVCC Offices – Pender 2, Suite 150

Donations are also welcome throughout the year.

Here are two options for donating your no-longer-used cell phone:

  1. Print a postage-paid label online –  and adhere it to your shipping box. Be sure to review shipping instructions carefully and include a return address on the label before you mail it.
  2. Use the HopeLine app to locate the nearest Verizon Wireless store and drop off your phone.
