PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Citizens Bank, Cumulus Broadcasting radio stations 92 PRO-FM, Lite Rock 105 and News Talk 630 WPRO and 99.7 FM, and Hasbro Inc. will embark on their fifth year of Neighbors in Need, a program designed to help nonprofit organizations and individuals who are struggling this holiday season.
“The men and women of Citizens Bank understand that many families are in need this holiday season,” said Ned Handy, President, Citizens Bank, Rhode Island. “With this in mind, we are focusing on the less fortunate and once again partnering with Cumulus Broadcasting and Hasbro Inc. on the Neighbors in Need program, which allows us to lend our neighbors a helping hand.”
Through the Neighbors in Need program, listeners on 92 PRO-FM, Lite Rock 105 and News Talk 630 WPRO and 99.7 FM can nominate members of their community who are in need of assistance. Nominations can be made on the stations’ websites.
On weekdays, December 3 through December 7, Citizens Bank will award $500 per day on 92 PRO-FM, Lite Rock 105 and News Talk 630 WPRO and 99.7 FM to a family in need this holiday season. A donation will also be made in that family’s name to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank and Crossroads Rhode Island to help other neighbors in need. Hasbro will donate toys and games to the children in each winning family.
“Hasbro is pleased to continue working with our friends at Citizens Bank and Cumulus Broadcasting on this wonderful program,” said Brian Goldner, Hasbro Inc.’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are happy to help our neighbors, the children and families across the community who need it most to have a brighter holiday this year.”
