Job Lot donates $50K to YMCA of Greater Providence

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Ocean State Job Lot recently donated $50,000 to the YMCA of Greater Providence to aid a new joint program titled Supporting Those Who Served.

The program provides veterans and their families free one-year memberships to any of the YMCA of Greater Providence’s seven branches.

The donation by Job Lot was seed money as part of the company’s Operation: Thank You program, which supports active military through multiple initiatives, including Veterans Day discounts and coat drives among others.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Greater Providence YMCA to further this effort by providing access to their services that a veteran and his or her family might not otherwise receive,” said Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation Executive Director David Sarlitto in a statement.
