Verizon FiOS SoCal Partnering with Habitat for Humanity to Influence Change

By Gayle Pearson

Walnut –

Verizon and the local community are teaming up to support non-profit organizations in each phase of their Verizon FiOS SoCal Campaign.  Since the program first launched in March 2013, Verizon has donated $40,000 to non-profit organizations throughout Southern California.  As they move into phase three, Verizon will donate $7,500 to the Pomona Valley branch of Habitat for Humanity.  This donation will help address the critical issue of essential, basic housing for U.S. Veterans and their families. Local Verizon employees will volunteer their time to kick off a home build in Walnut as part of the “Salute to Service” Veteran Build Program.  You can learn more about each organization Verizon is supporting, and vote on projects to be funded, at the live experience, and by visiting
