Bangor Wireless Zone Selects Maine Veterans Project for Grant
Locally Owned Verizon Authorized Retailer Gives $1000.00 Grant to local non-profit.

Wireless Zone®, the nation’s largest Verizon Wireless retail franchise, is showcasing the company’s commitment to local communities by giving back to charities across the nation through the Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving®.   This year the Bangor location nominated The Maine Veterans Project to receive a $1000.00 grant.
“We were so excited to get word that the Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving selected The Maine Veterans Project to receive a grant this year.” said Becky MacManus, Marketing Manager, Wireless Zone of Bangor. “We choose to nominate The Maine Veterans Project because the work they do to for veterans in Maine is extraordinary.  This particular grant will be used to help renovate a Bathroom for a Veteran in Newport.”
The Maine Veterans Project was founded in July of 2015 by Shawn Goodwin.  MVP is dedicated to fighting against veteran suicide in every way possible.  They are taking steps by creating a retreat for at-risk Veterans in Downeast Maine.  They also assist veterans with emergency home repairs, VA processes and paperwork and other services within necessity.

The Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving is just one of the many ways the Wireless Zone in Bangor gives back to the community they serve throughout the year.  Every month the location raises funds for a non-profit organization by asking its customers to Round-Up their purchases then matching the funds raised.  They host an annual Backpack Giveaway every summer and a Toys for Tots drive every winter.  They are committed to the community that they do business in and the State of Maine.
