“Mother’s Day is traditionally a time for families to get together and express their appreciation for Mom,” said Mario Turco, president of Verizon Wireless’ Philadelphia Tri-State Region. “Verizon Wireless is lending a hand to those families that don’t have the opportunity to share the day in person and giving them the ability to connect, no matter where in the world they may be. By providing access to our entire line-up of products and services, we hope families will at least be able to tell Mom ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ even if they aren’t able to see her.”
