BENEFITING: RI OIL HEAT INSTITUTE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 23, 2016
I'm doing it again! The Pell Bridge Run is taking place on Sunday October 23, 2016 starting at 7:15am. Last year I raised with your help $915 . These funds helped Rhode Island individuals and/or families with emergency home heating fuel needs last year. The cost of heating fuel is relatively low right now, but here in Rhode Island we have many individuals and families who live below the poverty level and struggle to pay for basic necessities of life- like heat and hot water!
One part of the mission of the Rhode Island Charitable Foundation is to help those at risk with emergency fuel deliveries. The program relies heavily on and thanks to the generosity of several fuel wholesalers who donate the gallons, fuel dealers who deliver those gallons, as well as private donations that help supplement the program.
I am so proud and grateful to be associated with an industry that gives back to those in greatest need.
