HopeLine Cell Phone Drive
Amherst Exempted Village School District will be hosting a used cellular phone drive from Monday, April 14th through Friday, April 25th. Please bring in any cellular phones and chargers that are no longer in use. The collected phones will be donated to Verizon Wireless's HopeLine program. HopeLine will wipe all user data and refurbish any phones that can be used again and will properly recycle any phones that cannot be used. The refurbished phones are provided to shelters and other organizations benefiting victims of domestic abuse. An example of a local beneficiary is the Genesis House in Elyria.

There will be a collection box for donated phones in the main office of each school, as well as, a poster advertising the donation drive and a small number of bilingual pamphlets explaining the HopeLine program. Additional information about the HopeLine program can be found at Verizon Wireless - HopeLine. If you have any questions about the phone drive, please feel free to contact Jon Heyd.
