PROVIDENCE – Trinity Repertory Co. announced it collected $44,000 in cash donations for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank during November and December 2012.
The collected donations bring the total dollar amount raised for the Food Bank through a seven-year partnership with Trinity Rep to nearly $260,000.
“Trinity Rep has been a longtime supporter of the work that the Rhode Island Community Food Bank does in our community,” said Curt Columbus, Trinity Rep’s Richard L. Bready Artistic Director, in a statement. “We are proud to continue such an essential and prolific partnership.”
Trinity Rep served as a holiday drop-off location for food donations and concluded each performance of ‘A Christmas Carol’ during the season with a collection for the Food Bank.
Trinity Rep also donated 150 tickets to a ‘A Christmas Carol’ performance to Food Bank clients and their families through the Open Access Theater program funded by Citizens Bank.
