Southside Community Land Trust is a Champion in Action!

We’re THRILLED to announce that Southside Community Land Trust has been chosen for the Champions in Action Award. SCLT is being honored by Citizens Bank and NBC-10 for its work to encourage environmental stewardship and improve the natural environment.

Earlier today, SCLT’s Board, staff, program participants and supporters were joined by Ned Handy, Citizens Bank President, and Steve DelPico of NBC-10 for the Champions in Action award announcement at City Farm in South Providence. After a brief speaking program, the check was presented and everyone celebrated with refreshments, including the first of City Farm’s cherry tomatoes!

Citizens Bank and NBC-10 have teamed up to create the Champions in Action program – a unique initiative designed to reward non-profit organizations who help communities thrive. Each year, they choose four organizations for the Champions in Action award. SCLT is so excited to be a part of such an esteemed group! Many previous Champions in Action winners were in attendance at the announcement today.

Through this wonderful award, SCLT is grateful to recieve a check for $25,000 from the Citizens Bank Foundation, media coverage on NBC-10, and public relations and volunteer support from Citizens Bank and NBC-10.

Many, many thanks to Citizens Bank and NBC-10 for this honor. And thank you to all of the volunteers, supporters, and community partners who, for so many years, have made our work possible!

Look for news coverage of the announcement this evening on NBC-10. You’ll also find brochures profiling SCLT in every Citizens Bank branch in Rhode Island.
