LINCOLN, RHODE ISLAND – Amica Insurance is pleased to announce that its employees have donated $2,780 to the Rhode Island Family Shelter. The donation represents the proceeds from a recent sale of Amica promotional items.
Rhode Island Family Shelter Inc. is the only temporary emergency family shelter of its kind in Rhode Island's Kent County area. All families are welcome, and approximately 300 individuals per year receive shelter. More than one-half of all individuals sheltered are children.
