The Warm Center, a resource for those in need in Westerly, recently announced that is has received a $50,000 gift toward its capital campaign from The Washington Trust Co.

The center, which provides food, shelter and other services, is currently in the process of raising money for the construction of a new center and for renovations of its existing center, a building lacking adequate space and accessibility for those who use wheelchairs.

In its new center, the organization plans to offer affordable apartments for those with disabilities, and more space for case management and the implementation of job-readiness programs.

“Once again Washington Trust has taken a leadership role to help our community protect and shelter those in need,” said Russ Partridge, executive director of the Warm Center.

Joseph J. MarcAurele, chairman, president, and CEO of Washington Trust, said the bank was proud to support the center. •
