GREEN BAY, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Going to Monday night's Packer game? Bring an old cell-phone if you still have one. The team will collect old phones, batteries, chargers, and related accessories, to be given to survivors of domestic violence.

Verizon Wireless will refurbish the phones that can be saved. The company will donate the phones, plus air-time, to domestic violence victims and survivors. Also, Verizon will donate $10 for each phone collected to the Golden House, a Green Bay organization that helps those affected by domestic violence.

The Packers will host the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Volunteers will be at the gates starting at 5:30. Those not going can still drop their items off at Verizon stores.
