ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN

Anti-bullying

The Middlesex County Community Foundation’s Council of Business Partners (CBP) is comprised of local business leaders dedicated to giving back to the community that has supported them over the years.

Marc Levin (far right), President of Malloves Jewelers and member of the MCCF Council of Business Partners, was concerned to learn that bullying can be a larger problem in schools than drugs or alcohol.  The group set out to research ways it could specifically impact the community’s youth. The group’s research led to its first project, the “No Bully Zone” initiative, using the expertise of the Rushford Center in the Fall of 2009.  Bullying in schools has become a serious and widespread problem and the group felt that an anti-bullying campaign could impact the area’s youth in a meaningful way. The collaboration between the Rushford Center and the CBP leveraged the Council’s financial resources and business contacts with Rushford’s expertise. The result is a program that utilizes peer leaders to educate other students and work with the school community to develop a safe learning environment for everyone.

To support the program, please contact Cynthia Clegg, President & CEO, Middlesex County Community Foundation at 860-347-0025 or e-mail Cynthia@MiddlesexCountyCF.org

For specific program information about the "No Bully Zone" program, contact Sheryl Sprague, Rushford Prevention Manager at 203-630-5357 or visit www.rushford.org.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"I have had two great experiences at Malloves recently. I am getting married this year and had shopped around at a few other places for an engagement ring and wedding band before coming to Malloves. The experience we had at Malloves far exceeded the other places where we had shopped. Everyone is super friendly and helpful and they were willing to go out of the way to find something for us that we loved. Most importantly, they were not pushy at all, which is such a breath of fresh air! Thank you Malloves! :)"
