This year’s recipients include Rhode Island Mayoral Academy-Blackstone Valley Prep in Cumberland, Saint Cecilia School in Pawtucket, Books are Wings, the YMCA of Pawtucket, Pawtucket Arts Collaborative, and Pawtucket Soup Kitchen.
“As a community bank, we feel it’s vitally important to support local organizations that are doing all they can to make a positive impact during these challenging times,” said Patrick Murray, president of BCSCF and president of BCSB, in a statement. “The [nonprofits] organizations we assisted this year are all building a stronger community in different ways and, in so doing, continually inspire us to keep doing our part.”
