SALT LAKE CITY, UT — Jonas Brothers fans can help curb domestic violence and electronic waste in our community and enter for a chance to see the band at the E-Center in Salt Lake City on Friday, Feb. 8. All it takes is an old wireless phone or accessory.
Fans can drop off used wireless phones and accessories for the Verizon Wireless HopeLine® program at a special collection on Wednesday, Feb. 6. Fans will receive one raffle ticket for every phone or accessory donated at the Verizon Wireless Communications Store in Murray at 10450 S. State Street during the special collection hours. The winning raffle prize includes two meet and greet passes and a pair of tickets to the Feb. 8 performance.
Through the HopeLine program, used wireless phones and accessories from any service provider are recycled, or refurbished for re-use.
Since the program began, the company has disposed of more than 1 million phones in an environmentally sound way and awarded nearly $5 million in cash donations to domestic violence organizations nationwide.
The company has also distributed more than 60,000 HopeLine phones with the equivalent of 160 million minutes of service and other features for use by victims, survivors and organizations.
