Verizon Wireless grant supports domestic violence programs

Verizon Wireless has donated a total of $5,000 to two Western Colorado programs that serve families affected by domestic violence.

The Hopeline grant went to Hilltop Community Resources and will be used at the Latimer House and Tri-County Resources. Latimer House serves Mesa County, while Tri-County Resources serves Delta, Ouray and Montrose counties.

“This generous donation from Verizon Wireless will be help us reach out to those who need our services in the community,” said Karla Kitzman, program coordinator at Latimer House. “It will be used to provide vital services — including emergency shelter, counseling and a 24-hour crisis line — as well as to continue our prevention and education efforts throughout the community.”

The Hopeline program collects used cell phones, batteries and accessories that can be refurbished and sold. Proceeds are used to provide cell phones and cash grants to organizations that offer domestic violence assistance and prevention efforts.
