CVS announces ‘Community Heroes’ winners

CVS Health, WPRI 12 and the Pawtucket Red Sox are joining forces for the third year of “Community Heroes”, a program that will provide $55,000 in grants to Rhode Island nonprofits. All three organizations are committed to helping youth lead tobacco-free lives. That is why this year’s grant program is a Public Service Announcement campaign where youth can create a 30- or 60-second video on what it means for them to be the first tobacco-free generation.

Congratulations to these following organizations:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Warwick

Chariho Youth Task Force

Learning Community Charter School

North Providence Youth Commission

Oasis International

Pawtucket Prevention Coalition

South Kingstown Partnership for Prevention

Spirit Educational Program

Tobacco Free Rhode Island

West Warwick High School SADD
