Coastway Golf Tournament Raises $5,000 for the Food Bank
Each year, Coastway Community Bank raises funds for non-profits throughout the state through its annual Coastway Care's Charitable Foundation's Golf Tournament, now in its eleventh year. This year, Coastway awarded the Rhode Island Food Bank $5,000 to help acquire and distribute food to Rhode Islanders in need.
"At Coastway, Community Involvement isn’t just a program – it’s an attitude," says Bill White, President and CEO of Coastway. "Community is in our name, it’s in our advertising and it’s in everything we do. We are committed to doing the right things, the right way for the cities and towns we call home."
Dominion Resources Services, Inc. Awards $10,000 for Community Kitchen Program
The Dominion Foundation and the employees at the Manchester Street Power Station have awarded the Food Bank $10,000 to support Community Kitchen, a 14-week culinary job training program for unemployed or underemployed adults.
Each year, up to 52 students work to gain valuable food service skills through the Community Kitchen program to help them gain employment. While they are in training, they also hone their skills by cooking meals for the Food Bank's Kids Cafe after-school meal program for low-income children. Community Kitchen students prepare over 450 meals each day for children who may not otherwise have an evening meal at home.
Charitable giving and volunteerism are an integral part of Dominion’s commitment to the communities they serve. Principally through The Dominion Foundation, Dominion Resources Services, Inc. contributes more than $20 million annually to non-profit organizations and schools in the states where they operate.
