In the Community

Our Involvement with Farmington, CT Community

Every September, Farmington River Financial Group hosts its annual shredding and food drive event. Mobile shredding trucks arrive at our office early in the morning and clients along with the local community are invited to come and securely destroy their confidential documents.

Thank you to our partners at FileShred for providing secure disposal of our documents and to everyone that joined us and donated!  This year 102 lbs. of food were donated to the Farmington Food Pantry's to support those in need. We also recycled 2,000 lbs of paper, which equates to saving 17 trees!

Farmington River Financial Group Proudly Sponsored the Petit Foundation 5K Road Race/Fitness Walk

Farmington River Financial Group is a proud sponsor of the Petit Family Foundation 5K road race. Our clients, friends, and family created a team of 30 people to participate in the 1.3 mile walk and 5K run. Dr. William Petit established the Petit Family Foundation in remembrance of his family, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, Hayley Elizabeth Petit, and Michaela Rose Petit. The Foundation provides scholarships to girls interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Being a female-owned firm, we hope that these scholarships encourage more women to enter the field of finance! Those that stopped by our FRFG booth enjoyed sunscreen, granola bars, and raffle entry for a change to win a bag filled with fitness items. Please enjoy all the photos on our past events page by clicking here. You can also catch a glimpse of our walking team in this news segment!

Our Involvement in Other Communities

Farmington River Financial Group's staff donate their personal time throughout the year to support many charitable organizations in their hometown communities. Some of the organizations that have benefitted from our employees and their families being actively involved are Boy Scout Troop 16, Mattebesst FFA, Middletown High School Band, Middletown High School Crew, Miss Porter's School, St. Pius X Parish and the Third Congregational Church of Middletown.

In addition to supporting our hometown communities, we are proud to support Commonwealth Financial Network® in their giving back initiative. During the 2016 National Conference in Austin Texas, Lori Johndrow and David Johndrow participated in a volunteer opportunity at the Dougherty Arts Center in downtown Austin. All spent their time painting and refreshing the center for the local artist.
