For the past 39 years, Prevent Child Abuse Vermont (PCAV) has been working to protect the health and happiness of children in our community. Our board members, volunteers, and staff strive to prevent child abuse by supporting healthy relationships between children and the people who care for them. Programs like Circle of Parents™, The Nurturing Parenting Program®, The Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Program, and The Sexual Abuse Free Environment for Teens Program™ (SAFE-T™) have helped Vermont see a 48% decrease in cases of substantiated abuse since 1990.

Vermont has become a national model for child abuse prevention, but there is still much work to be done. Over 800 Vermont children are abused or neglected each year. We need to unite as a statewide community to ensure a safe, nurturing environment for every child growing up in Vermont.

ALS IS A PROGRESSIVE NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASE THAT AFFECTS NERVE CELLS IN THE BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD. ALS usually strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70, and approximately 20,000 people in the U.S. have the disease at any given time. Although there is not yet a cure or treatment that halts ALS, scientists we fund through our global research program have made significant progress in understanding what causes ALS. But their work is not done, together we can we work towards a cure and that's why we are proud to be a presenting sponsor of the Jeremy R. Williams ALS Golf Classic.

The Williams Family has been hosting the JRW ALS Golf Classic at New England's only Championship Executive Golf Course, The Links at Lang Farm in Essex, VT, since 2018. Their son, Jeremy fought a battle with ALS starting in January 2013 and lost that battle in September 2015. Jeremy showed his family and everyone he came in contact with the true meaning of strength, humility and how to really smile! Every year the Williams Family continues his fight by helping to raise awareness through fundraising for the ALS Association by hosting this annual event.

In the first three years of hosting the tournament the William's Family has raised over $70,000 in the fight against ALS. 802 Cars/Twin City Subaru are proud to be a Presenting Sponsor for this event and will continue to support it until a cure is found.

The 802 Drive for Charity

Years Participated: 2015

The 802 Drive for Charity started as a vision of Twin City Subaru owner, Dave Birmingham, as a way to give back the local community and have one lucky winner drive away in a new car! That vision became a reality in 2015.

Starting in May and running through November 20th participants were able to purchase $5 raffle tickets for the chance to win a new car! There was no limit on the number of tickets (chances to win) a participant could purchase, so there was no limit on the amount of money that could be raised. By the time of the drawing on December 1st over $50,000 was raised for the Vermont Foodbank!
