Annual United Way of Rhode Island Campaign

“Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.”
-Anthony J. DeAngelo.

At OceanPoint Insurance we value our community and are committed to the well being of its members. That is why we are thrilled to partner with our parent company, BankNewport, and announce our annual United Way of Rhode Island (UWRI) Campaign. Our employees will once again participate in “hands-on” projects to support our community. This year marks BankNewport’s 200th anniversary, and in recognition of this tremendous achievement, we are honoring our Veterans and their families.

Employee volunteers will be working from October 11-31st to ‘lend a hand’ in making:

No-Sew Fleece Blankets
Our employee volunteers are making colorful, warm, no-sew fleece blankets to be donated to Veterans and children of military families. The bright, fringed and knotted blankets will provide warmth and comfort and are a beautiful act of kindness.

Nothing relieves stress and brings a smile to one’s face as quickly as a stuffed animal. Our employee volunteers are stuffing cuddly, honey-colored teddy bears along with their best wishes. Veterans, military personnel and families of active duty military can all use a message of kindness, a small but present reminder of the thanks that exists for their service; all conveyed in this precious handmade bear.

These items will be donated to the Rhode Island National Guard Family Assistance Center, Rhode Island Veterans’ Home Community Living Center, and Dare to Dream Ranch, Military Retreat.

A Million Thanks
Our active duty and retired military personnel deserve our gratitude and thanks for working tirelessly to protect our freedom. Our employees are sending messages of support and thanks to active, reserve and veteran military by creating cards of encouragement for our service members.

We want to extend our thanks to our employees who work daily to make our community a better place.
