Carver is the recent recipient of a $5,000 grant for the advancement of Carver students.
The mission of the John and Ethel Kashulon Foundation is to improve people’s lives through the funding of programs whose mission and projects align with its three unified goals of enhancing Educational, Children’s and Cultural opportunities.
Ethel Orco Kashulon was a lifelong Bridgeport resident until her passing in 2017. She graduated from Saints Cyril and Methodius Commercial High School, and immediately began working at the Bridgeport Housing Authority, where she was recognized as being their longest serving employee, retiring at age seventy after fifty-three years of employment.
For many years, Mrs Kashulon also worked at the family business, Kashulon’s Market, on Sheridan Street in Bridgeport. Devout Catholics, she and her husband, John Kashulon, had been an active members of Saint Cyril and Methodius Parish, Bridgeport for over fifty years. John Kashulon and Ethel were married on Halloween, October 31, 1960, and enjoyed 36 years of marriage until the passing of Mr. Kashulton.
The foundation was created in their memory and the Carver community is deeply grateful for being one of the recipients of the foundation's thoughtful giving.
