The Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau (PWCVB) recently organized a charitable drive to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence.

The PWCVB worked set up drop-off stations with its member organizations, collecting an impressive haul of arts and craft materials, bathing suits and towels, school supplies, and a wide variety of other items. The value of the good received was $2,500.
