LAWRENCE, KS — Verizon Wireless has donated $1,000 to Women’s Transitional Care Services, Inc. (WTCS) in Lawrence. The funds will be used to support the shelter’s Gas Cards program.

“Verizon Wireless has a strong history of supporting programs committed to raising awareness and breaking the cycle of domestic violence in our community,” said Lou Sigillo, president–Kansas/Missouri region, Verizon Wireless. “We’re proud to assist these organizations with their efforts to help women and children affected by domestic violence.”

WTCS provides safe-shelter, peer counseling, advocacy and other services to survivors of domestic violence in Douglas, Franklin, and southern Jefferson counties.
