Give a Phone. Save a Life.


Donate a phone

You can donate a phone by following these five easy steps.

STEP 1: Erase any data from the phone and disconnect the phone’s service with your wireless provider.
STEP 2: Remove any storage cards and SIM cards from the phone.
STEP 3: Power off the phone.
STEP 4: Place your wireless phone from any service provider along with the battery, charger and any accessories you wish to donate in a plastic bag. Call GCADV at 404-209-0280 to set up a drop-off time  or find a Verizon Wireless retail store near you to drop your wireless phone and accessories in a HopeLine bin.
STEP 5: Don’t have time to go to a store? Pack your wireless phone, battery, charger and accessories in a secure package. Print out our pre-paid mailing label and just drop in the mail..

Anyone can join in and host a HopeLine phone drive.

With a little bit of planning and utilizing HopeLine materials, you can host a phone drive that will benefit victims of domestic violence and help the environment at the same time.

  1. Share a few copies of our HopeLine Overview with friends, colleagues and contacts that would be interested helping you host your phone drive to help identify potential locations or events.
  2. Select the dates and location for your drive. Be sure to plan for the length of your collection when you do so.
  3. Get free HopeLine materials to promote and host your drive. Just email your request with the dates you’ve planned and we’ll send you the materials you need.
  4. Maximize participation in your phone drive. Publicize the event in advance with community newspapers, church bulletins, flyers, newsletters, bulletin boards and on social media. Feel free to mention us on Twitter using the hashtag #HopeLine and tweet @Verizon. Let people know how long phones will be collected, why donations are needed and how they will be used.
