The wireless industry remains committed to providing critical resources and support to students, frontline workers and communities during COVID-19. Take a look at some of the ways wireless companies recently lent a virtual hand:

- To support America’s frontline workers who have worked tirelessly during COVID-19, Verizon is partnering with professional basketball players to launch Verizon Frontline, an initiative that will honor first responders by helping deliver free meals to frontline workers from small-business restaurants in NBA teams’ hometowns. Verizon Frontline will also will host gaming livestream events where first responders and some of their favorite pro basketball players will participate.
