Modell’s Teams Up with Warwick, RI to Aid Flooded Community

General | May 18th, 2010
Earlier this month, Michael Gervais, assistant store manager of the Modell’s Sporting Goods store in Warwick, RI joined representatives of Warwick’s Human Services Department to present Mayor Scott Avedisian with gift cards to assist flood-affected Warwick residents.

The presentation also included the announcement of a community fundraising program whereby Modell’s Bald Hill Road (Warwick) customers can make dollar donations in-store to either the city’s Department of Human Services, which administers the “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” assistance program, or the Providence Rescue Mission, which has offered lodging and food to those displaced by the flood. For every donation, Modell’s will also donate $1 to either charity. (This runs through May 31, 2010).
