PACE-RI recently received a $10,000 grant from Eastern Bank to assist with our COVID-19 related expenses. The funds will allow us to provide each of our frail elder participants with protective and sanitation equipment in their own homes. Nearly all of our participants have fixed income so purchasing hand sanitizer, masks, and cleaning supplies can be a major burden. The cleaning and safety gear is also an important support for our teams who continue to provide care and support directly in participants homes.
The Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation is a leading partner in philanthropic initiatives around southern New England. As a nonprofit organization, PACE is incredibly grateful for the generous gifts of like-minded partners who help drive our mission forward. During the pandemic, that support from the community is even more needed and appreciated.
Thanks to this grant, PACE participants will have protection and peace of mind needed to stay safe at home.
