CITADEL Talk WPRO-A/PROVIDENCE raised $51,974 for MEALS ON WHEELS OF RHODE ISLAND during its radiothon WEDNESDAY (11/28). The event ran during the BUDDY CIANCI midday show for four hours.
"Community service and giving back to Rhode Islanders is something that we embrace at WPRO," said PD PAUL GIAMMARCO. "It’s important to talk about what is going on in the world, but just as important is to give back and to help find solutions to community problems."
"I can't thank BUDDY CIANCI and WPRO enough for making such a wonderful, successful day for this organization," said MEALS ON WHEELS OF RHODE ISLAND Pres./CEO SANDY CENTAZZO. "Just as vital as the money, is the opportunity to get the word out to as many people as possible about the importance of this program. 'Hope' is the motto of the State of RHODE ISLAND, and you were all a part of giving us that hope in meeting the needs of our frail, elderly seniors."
