Celebrating Our Cause, Sustaining Our Work

Our fundraising efforts are directed toward existing organizations. When we co-host events, such as prior collaborative efforts with FareStart, NECAT, Rhode Island Food Bank, and Boston University, a majority of the funds raised go directly to our partner. We are proud to support the great work that is being done in communities all across our nation.
