We Need Your Help to Collect Over 1,000 Children’s Books for Local Youth! BankNewport, OceanPoint Insurance Agency (OPIA) and the United Way of Rhode Island’s Women’s Leadership Council are partnering with Books Are Wings on a children’s book drive that will run from June 17 through June 29 at all BankNewport branch and OPIA office locations. The goal is to collect over 1,000 new and gently used children’s books during the two-week long drive.
All of the books collected will be distributed during Back to School Celebration RI’s backpack distribution event sponsored by BankNewport at the East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) Health Center, Six John H. Chafee Blvd. in Newport on Saturday, August 17.
