Arpin Strong increases fundraising by 62% in 2015

Apr 18, 2016
The Arpin Charitable Fund, also known as Arpin Strong, announced in its 2015 year-end report that it has raised $60,000 and donated to 30 charitable organisations.

"We are incredibly proud of Arpin Strong's achievements during our second full year," said Mark Dearborn, President of Arpin Strong. "Thanks to our generous corporate donors, sponsors, Arpin employees, agents and friends, we were able to raise 62 percent more funds than the previous year. I am humbled by their giving spirit and enthusiasm for each of our charitable causes. The Arpin Strong Board of Directors also wants to thank the Arpin family for their continued support and allowing us the time to dedicate to those in need."  

The Second Annual Arpin Strong Golf Tournament held in May was the single biggest fundraiser of the year, raising over $20,000. The funds were split equally in denominations of $5,000 and donated to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, Adoption Rhode Island, ALS Association of Rhode Island and the Coalition Against Pediatric Pain.  

Over the past year, Arpin Strong conducted theme days, monthly raffles, and supported the efforts of Arpin's Race Team in 10 events to raise funds.  

Several Arpin employees founded Arpin Strong in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013 as a way 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.
