Colts tight end Dwayne Allen & Coburn Place Safe Haven Vice President Lara Chandler announced today a partnership with HopeLine from Verizon. A cell phone collection to benefit Indiana Originals member Coburn Place will take place at the Sunday, October 25, 2015 game of the Colts vs. the New Orleans Saints. Community partners supporting this effort include Charles Schwab & Co., Frost Brown Todd LLC, 3M Personal Safety Division, The Skyline Club, RCI, Carrier Corp., Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at Butler University. HopeLine from Verizon offers the public an opportunity to help prevent domestic violence by donating no-longer-used wireless phones and accessories in any condition from any carrier. Wireless phones given to HopeLine are refurbished and recycled in an environmentally sound way, generating proceeds going toward financial support of domestic violence awareness and prevention programs. Verizon also donates new phones through HopeLine, complete with service, to local domestic violence agencies or law enforcement agencies for use by domestic violence survivors. All of the phones donated will benefit the efforts of Indiana Originals member Coburn Place. Coburn Place Safe Haven is Indianapolis’ largest and most comprehensive provider of transitional housing to victims of domestic violence in the state of Indiana and is a nationally recognized model program in breaking the cycles of domestic violence, poverty and homelessness. The organization has provided life-changing support to more than 1,600 adults and children since 1996. Learn more about Coburn Place here.
