The Verizon Foundation, the charitable arm of Verizon Communications Inc., had kicked off Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October with $35,000 in grants to four nonprofit organizations to support awareness and prevention programs in Rhode Island.

The grants were presented in a ceremony hosted by the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence. During the event, the Foundation also debuted “Monsters,” a film it produced to portray the impact of domestic violence.

“Domestic violence is a problem that affects all members of families and tears at the fabric of our society,” said Donna Cupelo, region president of Verizon New England. “These funds will go a long way in helping to educate people about abuse, the steps needed for prevention, and assisting those who are trapped in abusive relationships to get help and restore their lives.”

The grant recipients were: the Domestic Violence Resource Center of South County; the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence; Sojourner House; and Women’s Center of Rhode Island. •
