Verizon Employees at Five Locations in West Virginia Donate Nearly $7,000 Worth of Household Items to Local Domestic Violence Shelters

Collection of Items, in Conjunction With the National Network to End Domestic Violence, Is Part of a Companywide Effort

CHARLESTON, W.Va., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon employees at five work locations in West Virginia collected nearly $7,000 worth of items to donate to five local domestic violence shelters during a 12-day Shower for the Shelter drive.

Nationally, 485 Verizon locations participated in the recent companywide effort to collect personal care products, clothing and household items for local domestic violence shelters. In all, nearly 200 shelters across the country were assisted.

"Verizon employees have a long history of giving back to their communities," said B. Keith Fulton, president of Verizon West Virginia. "Organizing a Shower for the Shelter drive for domestic violence survivors is another way our employees are making a positive impact where they live and work."

Verizon partnered with the National Network to End Domestic Violence to coordinate the Shower for the Shelter donation efforts.

The Verizon Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Verizon Communications, supports the advancement of literacy and K-12 education through its free educational Web site,, and fosters awareness and prevention of domestic violence. In 2008, the Verizon Foundation awarded more than $68 million in grants to nonprofit agencies in the U.S. and abroad. It also matched the charitable donations of Verizon employees and retirees, resulting in an additional $26 million in combined contributions to nonprofits. Through Verizon Volunteers, one of the nation's largest employee volunteer programs, Verizon employees and retirees have volunteered more than 3 million hours of community service since 2000.
