BankRI sponsors Meeting Street Telethon

Posted 2/15/13

With the help of a $4,000 sponsorship from Bank Rhode Island, the 37th annual Meeting Street Telethon exceeded its fundraising goal, bringing in more than $809,000.

Meeting Street is a school that serves more than 3,000 children of all abilities through educational, therapeutic and developmental services. Its annual telethon, held this year on Jan. 26, raises funds to support its work within Rhode Island.

“Meeting Street is an incredible resource for the community and local families; one that’s strengthening our state’s future by empowering young people to succeed in life and fostering the development of the whole child,” said Patricia O’Donnell-Saracino, vice president of community relations for BankRI. “The outpouring of generosity from the community in helping the school exceed its goal underscores the important work they do each and every day.”

Aimee Harvey, director of special events for Meeting Street, said the school’s goal is to create an environment where children of all abilities learn, play, work and live together.

“The overwhelming success of this year’s Telethon and the continued support of BankRI will further enable us as a national leader in child development and as a resource for those families who need us most,” she said.
