A recent cellphone-recycling drive held by Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin and the R.I. Office of the Attorney General resulted in a $2,000 donation to support victims of domestic violence.

Over the span of a month, cellphones were collected and then given to HopeLine. HopeLine is a Verizon Wireless program that refurbishes phones, provides minutes and gives them to agencies to distribute to clients affected by domestic violence. Refurbished phones are also sold, with the proceeds benefitting HopeLine.

“The simple act of donating an old cellphone can help a victim of domestic violence get emergency help and access to resources to end the cycle of violence,” Kilmartin said. “ … For someone in an abusive, controlling and violent relationship, a cellphone is much greater than a convenience, it is a lifeline.”

At the end of the drive, Verizon Wireless acknowledged the attorney general and his office’s efforts with a $2,000 HopeLine contribution to the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence. •
