Thanks for helping collect canned goods

This summer I was selected to be a contestant in the 2014 Miss Rhode Island USA pageant. It was my good fortune that my employers, Kevin and Sherri Deacon of Conanicut Cleaning, believed in me enough to sponsor my candidacy. I can’t thank them enough. The Miss Rhode Island USA pageant lends its support to many charitable organizations. This year’s pageant asked each contestant to collect for the R.I. Community Food Bank, and a total of 4,000 canned goods were collected. I would like to thank everyone, especially the Deacons and Julia Montminy, who contributed to this summer’s drive for the food bank. With your help, I collected a total of 385 canned goods for the cause. I was named the winner of the 2014 Miss Rhode Island USA Humanitarian Service Award.
