United Way of Rhode Island wrote -The Young Leaders Circle of United Way of Rhode Island invites you to RUN UNITED with us at the Citizens Bank Pell Bridge Run. In recent years, the number of young children and families experiencing homelessness in Rhode Island has grown: 39% are families and 13% are children, 5 years or younger. In the last year, as calls for shelter to United Way 2-1-1 in Rhode Island continued to climb, calls for family shelter were among the most urgent calls received. Together we can be part of the solution. With your help, more families can retain their homes in the year ahead. Our goal is to raise $8,000 to help families who are at-risk of losing their homes. Each and every program supported by United Way of Rhode Island is based on research, data, and accountability. With zero overhead, one hundred percent of your donation goes to vital programs in RI.
