The Residential Properties Ltd. Food Drive was concluded this past week, resulting in over 5,500 meals provided to the Rhode Island Food Bank.
In all, 702 pounds of food was collected, including a variety of canned goods, boxed items, peanut butter, tuna fish, rice, beans, and other essential, high protein foods. In addition, Residential Properties was happy to donate over $1,600 to the worthy cause.
“I am thrilled that our food drive was a huge success and will benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank,” says RPL President & CEO, Sally Lapides.
RPL, which will celebrate its 35th Anniversary this November, has always been active in supporting the needs of those in Rhode Island. “One of the core values of Residential Properties is giving back to the community,” explains Lapides. “I would like to thank all of our colleagues and clients who participated.”
This time of year is particularly slow for donations, making local support all that more important for the Rhode Island Food Bank. With 167 member agency food programs across Rhode Island, the organization has distributed millions of pounds of food and household items to local communities.
