The American Red Cross is proud to accept a very generous donation of $50,000 from Verizon Wireless. “We have been long time partners with the local Verizon Wireless team and have always received excellent care and service from them. We are so excited and thankful to see it in this response to the recent disaster as well.” says Red Cross Volunteer, Carolyn Farrar, who works closely with the local Verizon team regarding the Southern Missouri Region phone contract.
“Verizon Wireless is proud to assist the American Red Cross and to work directly with our Red Cross volunteers throughout Southern Missouri as they respond to the recent round of tornado damage in our local communities,” said Brendan Fallis, president – Kansas/Missouri region, Verizon Wireless.
