Coming Together to Fight Hunger

Before the onset of COVID-19, 35 employee volunteers from BankNewport and its sister agency, OceanPoint Insurance, participated in a meal-packaging project with the United Way of Rhode Island. This partnership not only allowed bank employees to interact with their community, but also gave them the chance to strengthen relationships with their team beyond the walls of their branch.

In just two hours, the team packaged 12,000 meals for local food pantries, including FabNewport, the MLK Community Center, East Bay Community Action Program and We Share Hope, a contribution that unknowingly would fill an immediate need when the pandemic affected their community.
