When Jackie Crane was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend, her family chose to honor the memory of the mother of three by giving hope to other victims of domestic violence. On her birthday, July 6, her family set up HopeLine collection boxes in four counties around Fort Mill, S.C. In just one month, the family collected 345 phones, 167 chargers, 29 batteries and 57 accessories to be turned into support for victims of domestic violence.
"We want women to be able to go to someone," said Laquinda Green, Jackie's cousin, "Someone is out there, someone is listening—just call."
The family plans to continue to help victims of domestic violence and has made the phone drive an annual event.
