One Orlando FundAny Verizon Wireless customer who would like to help the victims and their families can easily donate to the OneOrlando Fund formed by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. The purpose of the OneOrlando Fund is to provide a way to help respond to the needs of Orlando’s community after the effects of the Pulse tragedy.

“Our City has just begun to recover from the impact of the Pulse tragedy. The support of major cell phone providers, like Verizon, sends a signal to our City that we are not in this alone. The money we are raising will provide a way to help us respond to the needs of our community. Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are for the outpouring of support from across the globe,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.

To support the OneOrlando Fund, text the word ORLANDO to 501501 and $10 will be added to your Verizon Wireless bill upon confirmation with your billing zip code.
