Rabbi Peter Stein, of Temple Sinai in Cranston, praised PINS.
“The PINS effort allows us to fulfill our vision as a congregation, of doing our share to eliminate suffering in the community,” he said.
“It’s a marvelous program engaging all people in the community for the purpose of preserving families,” said Rev. Carl Balark of Providence’s Ebenezer Baptist Church.
While Family Service of RI and partnering social service agencies provide a range of services for the families enrolled in the Family Care Community Partnership, when it comes to basics like household goods and clothing they turn to PINS.
“For families struggling to make financial and emotional ends meet, connection to a caring faith community or business can make all the difference,” said Family Service of RI CEO Margaret Holland McDuff.
