Westerly, Rhode Island... Everyone needs a little help from their friends during the holiday season and The Washington Trust Charitable Foundation has done its part by making financial donations to local Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts area food pantries. Ned Handy, Washington Trust's new President & Chief Operating Officer, recently stopped by the Jonnycake Center of Westerly to hand-deliver a check to the Center's Director Liz Pasquilini. Handy and his family have volunteered at the Jonnycake Center for the past several years, so he knows first-hand the value of services provided by the Center.

"Giving back to the community is at the heart of what we do at Washington Trust," said Handy. "We hope that the support we provide will enrich the lives of the families the Center serves, especially during the holiday season."

"The generosity of companies like Washington Trust is vital to the Jonnycake Center," said Elizabeth Pasquilini, Director of the Jonnycake Center in Westerly. "The Bank's donation has made it possible for us to provide holiday meals for a number of families in need this holiday season."
