On April 27th 2013, Watertown Police Officer Avelina Abby Rivera lost her brother Victor in a devastating house fire at her home. In addition to the loss of her brother, Abby lost her home, her possessions and those of her young son. Abby is a single mother and a veteran police officer who goes above and beyond regularly. Abby is actively involved in the Connecticut Crisis Intervention Team and Car Seat Installations. She works outside of the Police Department with the Girl Scouts and other community groups. Abby comes from a law enforcement family, as her two brothers, Orlando and Eddie Rivera are police officers in Waterbury.
We are seeking donations to assist Abby in replacing her possessions that were lost in the fire.Donations can be made to Avelina Rivera and sent to the Watertown Police Department, 195 French Street, Watertown, CT 06795 or to the Greater Watertown Federal Credit Union, 48 Woodruff Avenue, Watertown, CT 06795.
