“With the cost of everything rising, in part due to inflation, our local nonprofits need more help than ever providing basic needs to the people of Rhode Island,” said Vicki Doran, 2022 President of the GPBOR C.A.R.E. Foundation. “As REALTORS®, with a vested interest in the communities we live and work in, we want to be there for our neighbors. Whether it’s through a community food drive or a monetary donation, we feel it’s our duty to help where we can.”
