Paducah Police Dept. Phone Drive for Domestic Violence Victims Runs Through Jan. 5

If you received a new cell phone for the holidays, you can turn your old one over to the Paducah Police Department to help victims of domestic violence.

The PPD has partnered with Verizon Wireless’ HopeLine program. HopeLine refurbishes devices to provide support to domestic violence victims in the form of free phones and cash grants.

At the end of the drive, Verizon will present a grant to Paducah's Merryman House. The 24-bed shelter  serves domestic violence survivors in Paducah and eight surrounding counties.

The drive lasts through Jan. 5, and accepts any cell phone, from any carrier, as well as any accessories that come with it. 

Drop-off locations:

  • Paducah Police Dept. - 1400 Broadway
  • Verizon Wireless - 5017 Hinkleville Road (in front of Kentucky Oaks Mall)
  • Verizon Wireless - The Cellular Connection, 2540 Lone Oak Road, Suite A
