Thank You


Below are photos of donations of over 2000 pieces of jewelery received from Ocean State Job Lot, delivered by David Sarlitto, Director of the OSJL Charitable Foundation. These products are included in the personal care kits that the Partnership has been delivering to cancer patients at each of the cancer centers in the state. Mr. Sarlitto insisted on personally delivering them himself. Corporate leadership and community leadership go hand in hand. At OSJL, they not only talk the talk but walk with you to help you get to a better place. We are most grateful for their support.

Best regards,
