Rhody Resilient

In this uncharted territory, we've seen Rhode Islanders come together more than ever.  The #RhodyResilient campaign aims to highlight stories of resilience from our state, from local businesses serving the community to neighbors lending a helping hand. Let's show locals and visitors alike that the Ocean State can not only come through tough situations together, but emerge stronger than before.
