Proud to Support Relief Efforts in the Midwest and Southeast

by Employee ‎03-06-2012 02:21 PM - edited ‎03-06-2012 02:24 PM

redcross133x212.jpgToday's guest blog is from Jayne Mayer, director of employee volunteerism, Verizon Foundation.


Communities throughout the Midwest and Southeast have been ravaged by recent tornados and flooding. You can do your part to help with the relief and recovery efforts by texting a donation: Verizon Wireless has implemented a mobile giving program for customers, which is activated during emergencies. Verizon customers can use their mobile phones to make $10 donations to the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, World Vision and The Community Foundation of the Ozarks.


Donating is easy - customers simply text the specific word to the organization's designated short code:


  • The Community Foundation of the Ozarks: Text "BRANSON" to 41010

  • American Red Cross Relief: Text "REDCROSS" to 90999

  • The Salvation Army: Text "STORM" to 80888

  • World Vision: Text "WV" to 20222


Verizon Wireless waives text-messaging fees for disaster relief, so text messages are free when used to make donations to any of these organizations, and 100 percent of each $10 donation goes to the relief organization.


Verizon employees who make a donation to help can double their impact by participating in Verizon Foundation's Disaster Relief Incentive Program. The Verizon Foundation will match online credit card donations of $25 or more from U.S.-based employees to the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army, which have launched relief efforts in nearly a dozen states. To qualify for the company match through March 30, Verizon employees should log in at


Last year employee donations to disaster relief efforts coupled with Verizon Foundation support through the matching program totaled more than $1 million. For more information on Verizon's philanthropic work, click here.


Each of us at the Verizon Foundation extends our thoughts and support to the individuals and families affected and all those working on the ground to aid in recovery.
