Nearly 1,200 students, faculty and staff from Roger Williams University recently participated in the ninth annual Community Connections Day – a daylong introduction to service in which teams of volunteers supported more than 50 community organizations across Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.
Funding from Rhode Island Local Initiative Support Corporation & Citizens Bank Growing Communities Grant, the Providence Department of Recreation and the R.I. Department of Health enabled most of the children to participate on scholarships – many riding a bike for the first time.
Rhode Island ranked 40th among the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia for overall financial security of its residents in the 2014 Assets & Opportunity Scorecard released Thursday by the Corporation for Enterprise Development.
