      In honor of Mother's Day, Verizon Wireless made a donation to the Liberty House of Albany.

      Verizon made a $1,000 dollar donation to the non-profit organization that relies heavily on donations for funding. They also donated bouquets of flowers as well as gift bags to the women currently enrolled in the shelter.

      Silke Deeley the CEO of Liberty House said, "We like to make sure that the mothers in our shelters are recognized on Mother's Day because they have a really hard job. First of all if they're victims of domestic violence just trying to keep themselves safe and then keeping their children safe too."

      Deeley also added that with that $1,000 dollar donation they'll be able to provide a month's worth of food to the women and children in the shelter.
