Dear neighbor –
Providence is a City of Kindness because we care for the wellbeing of all our residents. Throughout our community’s response to the ongoing public health crisis, I have seen neighbors finding innovative ways to support each other. Thank you for your commitment to keeping each other safe and healthy during this time. You are helping to save lives.
I’d like to highlight a few of our neighbors who are making a positive impact on our community. We know there are many more out there and I would like to know about all of them. Please submit acts of kindness you experience or witness through our City’s Kindness portal. As social media is a great way to stay connected right now, you can also share them with me on Facebook and Twitter.
We have seen a tremendous spirit of giving of all scales and sizes in response to the ongoing public health crisis. Please continue to support our front-line healthcare workers by washing your hands frequently, wearing a mask, and keeping six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who isn’t a part of your immediate household when out in public, and together we can keep our community safe and healthy.
You can always reach my office with any and all questions through the Mayor’s Center for City Services by dialing 3-1-1, visiting PVD311.com, or by downloading the PVD311 mobile app for 24/7 access. Residents can also register to receive CodeRED emergency notifications by phone, email, text, and/or mobile alerts for the latest updates from the City.
