Thank you to everyone who participated in our Charity Contest! We are proud to work, live, and serve alongside the many wonderful organizations throughout Connecticut. We are pleased to announce The C.A.R.E.S. Group as the winner of our CarterCares $5,000 charity donation contest.
The C.A.R.E.S. Group, founded by a mother and her son, is a direct response to the increase in substance abuse, overdoses, and deaths of young people in local communities. They felt first-hand the devastating impact of addiction on the entire family. In their personal struggles, which span over a decade, they discovered a lack of available resources for parents and other affected family members.
The C.A.R.E.S. Group provides education, support, resources and hope for communities, families, and individuals who are affected by substance abuse and its devastating consequences.
