Richmond Officer Dedicates Playground for Domestic Violence Shelter in Her Mother’s Honor

May 06, 2005  | 

Verizon Wireless is donating $5,000 through the HopeLine cellphone recycling program to the YWCA of Richmond to rebuild a playground at the organization’s domestic violence shelter in honor of Richmond PD Det. Carol Adams’ mother, Orine, who died in a domestic violence incident.

Adams has herself collected thousands of used wireless phones and chargers through phone recycling drives held in conjunction with the Richmond PD. The collected phones have been donated to the HopeLine program, which recycles and sells the devices and then donates cash and cell phones to benefit domestic violence victims. The program also donates airtime to domestic violence prevention programs and service providers.

Adams was 17 when her mother died on New Year’s Eve in 1980. She was deeply affected by her loss and has spent much of her life crusading for domestic violence prevention. Now, the Orine Adams Playground will help children affected by domestic violence.

Through the HopeLine program, more than $800,000 has been donated to shelters and organizations to support domestic violence prevention programs and victims’ services. Phones can be dropped off at Verizon Wireless Communications Stores for recycling through HopeLine.
