Our mission is to bring awareness of domestic violence, raise funds to provide education, and to promote healthy and happy relationships.
The Carol Rivest Memorial Foundation is a growing non-profit organization that raises money and awareness to fulfill our company’s mission. We strive to educate, empower, and donate to our local communities through our work. Please join us in our effort to raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse. Proceeds from our annual benefit event will benefit Asnuntuck Community College Women’s Enrichment program in Enfield CT, Womanshelter/ Companeras in Holyoke, MA and The Palmer Domestic Violence Task Force. All agencies work with and for victims and their families, providing support and shelter. Most importantly these wonderful agencies educate the community to help recognize, fight against and end domestic violence.
