On July 1, 2022, the Orange Rose Foundation was proud to present a check to Portal To Hope (PTH) in support of their hard work helping victims of and raising awareness about domestic violence.
The Foundation was organized by the family and friends of a victim of domestic violence, Ersilia (Cataldo) Matarazzo. According to the Orange Rose Foundation’s website, it is “a 501(c)3 charity focusing on supporting organizations that assist victims of domestic violence. Orange Rose, Ersilia’s favorite flower, signifies Ersilia’s beauty, strength, passion, excitement, and love for her family and friends.” Ersilia was an active member of the Everett community, volunteering her time to help others.
The work done by PTH provides a variety of programs and services that help survivors heal and recover from situations of domestic abuse. The Orange Rose Foundation will continue to work hard to raise funds to support programs that do as much good as PTH.
