North Providence Mayor in the Fight Against COVID-19

In the tumultuous era of the coronavirus, North Providence Mayor Charles Lombardi is doing everything he can to support his community.

One investment he has made has been to Family Service of Rhode Island’s “Be Safe” campaign, which provides food, masks, cleaning supplies and more to low-income families across the state. More than 100 North Providence residents have been helped.

“You guys do a great job,” he said.

Mayor Lombardi, like many local, state and national leaders, doesn’t expect a return to “normalcy” for at least another year. In the meantime, he’s working with other mayors and the Rhode Island League of Cities and Towns to coordinate plans and share advice to help ease the reopening process town-wide and statewide.

Coming from the world of small business, Mayor Lombardi understands the economic toll the coronavirus has been taking on small local companies, and he’s working to ease the pain in his community. He’s worried about balancing the

difficulties of at-home learning for his town’s students and the health risks of returning too early. He’s making sure North Providence senior citizens are being cared for through daily food deliveries, despite the town’s extremely active senior center’s closure due to COVID-19. And he’s concerned about low-income North Providence residents and is doing whatever he can to help.

He looks forward to continue working with FSRI and is grateful for the help his residents are receiving.

“I want to publicly thank you,” he said.
