Arpin Strong raises over $79,000 for charities

May 09, 2018
The Arpin Charitable Fund, also known as Arpin Strong, announced in its 2017 year-end report that it has raised over $79,000 and donated to 34 charitable organisations.

Mark Dearborn, President of Arpin Strong said, "2017 was a very successful fundraising year and we were able to exceed last year's record-breaking donations by more than 6%. These strong fundraising and volunteerism efforts have allowed us to continue to expand our charitable giving and make a real difference for those in need.”

The fourth Annual Arpin Strong Golf Tournament held in May was the single largest fundraiser of the year, raising over $28,000. The funds were split equally and donated to The Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Honor Flight New England, MitoAction, and Teach for America.

Over the past year, Arpin Strong helped to raise funds and supplies for victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and also held a clothing drive for the families of four movers who lost their lives in the September 19 earthquake in Mexico City. Arpin Strong also conducted theme days, monthly raffles and supported the efforts of Arpin's racing team, which participates in charity runs and other activities, in nine events to raise funds for charitable causes.

Employees founded Arpin Strong in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013 to show support for the relief efforts. The scope of the program expanded in the following months to aid the victims of disasters around the world, including the Oklahoma tornadoes and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
