ICADV was selected in October as one of more than 160 participating nonprofits across the country to be a part of the Purple Purse Challenge, which raises funds for nonprofits serving domestic violence victims. ICADV was chosen for its commitment to providing financial empowerment services to domestic violence survivors. During the month (Domestic Violence Awareness Month), ICADV raised $1,000 and received a “bonus” gift from the Foundation for another $1,000. Thanks to all who participated!

With their HopeLine Project, Verizon Wireless collects no longer used wireless phones, batteries, chargers and accessories in any condition from any service provider to benefit victims and survivors of domestic violence. Verizon donates wireless phones, complete with voice and text capabilities, to local domestic violence shelters and non-profit organizations and agencies for use by victims and survivors. These phones serve as a vital link to support services and provide a safe line of communication to family, loved ones and employers. Other items are recycled and the proceeds are turned into valuable financial support for domestic violence awareness and prevention initiatives. You can bring your items to ICADV and we’ll get them to the HopeLine Project.
