TOPEKA, KS — Verizon Wireless has donated $1,000 to the YWCA of Topeka. The funds will be used by the YWCA’s R.A.C.E. Committee to support domestic violence education sessions. The sessions are a part of the Adopt-a-School project recently implemented at Highland Park High School.
“Verizon Wireless has a strong history of supporting programs committed to improving the quality of life for those in our community,” said Lou Sigillo, president–Kansas/Missouri region, Verizon Wireless. “We’re proud to assist the YWCA as they work to help the students at Highland Park High School become the best they can be.”
