Kind Heart Fresh Start

4,700+ items donated to Rhode Island homeless shelters.

Together, we helped provide a fresh start for Rhode Island's homeless shelters.

 This August, BankNewport invited the community to join us in donating personal care items to local shelters–and it was a success! Thank you to everyone who participated! Together, we helped make a difference with:

  • 1,800+ items donated by BankNewport employees
  • 2,900+ items donated by community members
  • 4,700+ items donated in total
  • Impacting 1,000+ individuals in need
