Giving back to the community isn’t just a dutiful responsibility; for PCFP, we enjoy making contributions within our community. As a small, locally-owned business, we are proud to support many different Rhode Island charities. Each contributes to the community and helps its citizens in a unique, impactful way.
Here are some of the Rhode Island charities that we at PCFP are happy to be involved with:
Wickford Art Festival
The Wickford Art Festival has been a cherished Rhode Island tradition since 1962. Hosted by the Wickford Art Association every July, this festival is seen as one of the leading summer events on the Eastern seaboard.
PCFP is proud to be a part of an event that celebrates fine art. Every year, the Wickford Art Festival features over 200 artists, from New England, the United States, and beyond. The art media on display is diverse, including, but not limited to: oil, acrylic, mixed media, glass, drawing, etching, sculpture (metal, clay, wood, etc.), photography, and modern ink.
Join PCPF in visiting the local streets of historic Wickford Village next July to witness this event.

East Greenwich Little League
For the young athletes of East Greenwich, Rhode Island, this little league hosts divisions of play for baseball and softball. Created for children between the ages of five and sixteen, it is a great opportunity for children to learn about the sport for the first time or to continue practicing their skills.
At PCFP, we are happy to support a charity that encourages a healthy, active lifestyle. By participating in EG Little League, kids learn, not only about the sport, but also about the importance of consistent, rigorous exercise.

East Greenwich Soccer Association
The East Greenwich Soccer Association is a volunteer organization that offers recreational and competitive soccer programs. It reaches over 900 youth soccer athletes under the age of sixteen, helping them to develop team-building and leadership skills on and off the field.
One of the reasons PCFP loves to support the EGSA is that it is a family organization. In East Greenwich, Rhode Island and its neighboring towns, families can come together to practice the sport together, play games together, and cheer from the sidelines together. This familial, supportive culture of the EGSA is a real inspiration for PCFP.

North Kingstown Little League
Little leagues are a fun way for young kids to learn about teamwork, dedication, and hard work. Practicing a sport teaches them, not just how to throw a ball or run a mile, but how to collaborate effectively with others and to believe in yourself.
North Kingstown’s Little League was created especially for children ages four to thirteen. It offers instructional and recreational leagues, both of which help young athletes to learn lessons about the sport – and, about life.
PCFP is pleased to support this organization and its twofold mission to teach valuable lessons for the sport and for life.
North Kingstown Quahog Festival
North Kingstown celebrated its inaugural Quahog Festival June 25th, 2016. Together, the Rhode Islanders of Narragansett Bay established this new summer event to celebrate the quahog and other local seafood.
The Quahog festival began with a parade. Then, invited its audience to enjoy quahogs and other seafood while listening to live music, playing games, and engaging with local vendors. All proceeds from the festival were donated to the town of North Kingstown for the beach beautification project and to Delivering Hope, a local organization that anonymously serves the needy in North Kingstown.
PCFP was happy to be a part of the festival’s first annual celebration and is looking forward to supporting it for many years to come.
