Firm sponsors fundraiser for Providence-area charter school

PROVIDENCE (May 13, 2011) – The firm recently sponsored a cocktail reception fundraiser for The Learning Community, a K-8 charter school serving the Rhode Island communities of Central Falls, Pawtucket and Providence.

The April 29 event helped raise funds for the nearly 500-student school based in Central Falls.  The Learning Community, founded in 2004, is a client of the firm. The school’s curriculum focuses on literacy, and emphasizes the speaking, listening and critical thinking skills that support success in the classroom and the community and prepares students for college.

“We are pleased to support the ongoing tremendous achievements at The Learning Community,” said Tim Groves. “The school has created a wonderful learning environment for its teachers and students.”
