EPHS Alumni Invited to Support Class Scholarships

Posted

Scholarship Foundation of East Providence will hold its 30th annual phone-a-thon from February 7 to 17. Alumni of East Providence High School (EPHS) are invited to make a contribution in honor of their year of graduation. Last year, the EPHS Class of 1964 raised more than $5,500 and the Class of 1973 raised more than $3,300 in scholarships. Also participating were the Classes of 1949, 1950, 1955, 1962, 1965, 1974 and 1985. Together, EPHS alumni classes raised more than $13,700 in scholarships.

“As we celebrate the 30th phone-a-thon and our 55th year of community service, this is a great opportunity for East Providence High School alumni to give back to the community,” notes Scholarship Foundation of East Providence President Joseph Durand. Classes that will be celebrating a special reunion year – 50th, 40th, 25th, 10th – can kick off their special year with this fundraising event. To boost their effort, as part of the phone-a-thon, the Carter Family Fund at the Rhode Island Foundation will match the first $45,000 in contributions received. Checks can be made payable to Scholarship Foundation of East Providence and sent to P.O. Boz 154438, Riverside, RI 02915. As a non-profit charitable organization, all contributions made through Scholarship Foundation of East Providence are tax-deductible.
