Dan Mead, President and CEO of Verizon Wireless, left, and the company's first CEO, Denny Strigl, were on hand when Wireless Week presented its annual industry awards on the opening day of the International CTIA Wireless 2012® show, Tuesday in New Orleans. The company received an award for its nationwide HopeLine® phone recycling and reuse program that benefits victims of domestic violence.
In October 2011, the Verizon Wireless west area team recently built a partnership with Lauras House, a non-profit domestic violence shelter located in Orange County, CA. The partnership inspired a stronger adoption of Lauras House and in recognition of the team's support, Lauras House presented Verizon Wireless with the Corporate Crystal Heart Award during its 17th annual gala in Newport Beach, CA
HopeLine makes a profound difference in the communities it serves across the country. Last month, SafeHouse-Denver recognized that difference by presenting the company with its 2011 Susan Noble Community Impact award at its annual fundraising gala. Created in 2002, the award is presented each year by the Denver-based domestic violence shelter to an individual or organization in recognition of outstanding efforts to assist survivors of domestic violence and to create community change. Mountain Region President Melanie Braidich accepted the 2011 Susan Noble Community Impact award from SafeHouse- Denver CEO Victoria McVicker at its annual gala.
