Letter: Week by week, Clements' Food Bank gift grows

Posted

 To the editor:

Here at Clements', our staff members contribute to the Rhode Island Food Bank Program weekly. The program uses those funds to purchase and store product to send to the Food Bank every December. It’s a great feeling to see a truck of eight pallets filled with essential foods for those in need.

Every week many Clements’ team members donate a small dollar amount that adds to great community needs later on in the year. Bob MacFarlane started this ball rolling a few years ago and it has only picked up in speed and size as the years have gone by.

During the holidays with all the hustle and bustle it’s important to remember those in need. Here at Clements’ during our busy time, we just like to take a moment to help the less fortunate enjoy a special holiday season.
