Help Reach Phone-A-Thon Goal


Students, parents and volunteers from Scholarship Foundation of East Providence recently called thousands of East Providence residents during their 25th annual phone-a-thon. Proceeds from the event will provide scholarships for East Providence students who are entering or already enrolled in a four-year college or in vocational or technical school.

“Our goal is to raise $100,000 for scholarships this year,” noted Phone-a-thon Chairman Louise Paiva. Members of the volunteer scholarship organization are grateful for the initial contributions that have been received from local residents who were called during the phone-a-thon.

There is still time to help. Residents who did not receive a phone call during the phone-a-thon, but who would like to contribute, can send a check, made payable to Scholarship Foundation of East Providence, to: Scholarship Foundation of East Providence, P.O. Box 154438, Riverside, RI 02915.
