On October 15, 2020 The Providence Center honored Joseph P. Marasco, Donna M. Nesselbush, and the Marasco & Nesselbush team at their annual Circle of Stars fundraising event held virtually for the first time.
“When The Providence Center was responding to children and adults impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the team at Marasco & Nesselbush was there, and we could not be more grateful for your dedication and your generosity,” stated Lisa Desbiens, Philanthropy Officer at The Providence Center.
The Providence Center’s mission is to help adults, adolescents, and children affected by psychiatric illness, emotional problems, and addiction by providing treatment and supportive services within a community setting. Since COVID-19, several Rhode Islanders have struggled with depression, anxiety, and addiction. The proceeds of the Circle of Stars event supported the COVID-19 emergency fund that cares for the low-income patients in our community during this crisis and helps aid with urgent needs such as increased access to emergency & telehealth services.
“From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank The Providence Center for choosing Marasco & Nesselbush as the honoree for this year’s Circle of Stars event. I will always hold this honor ‘near and dear’ because I always hold The Providence Center ‘near and dear,” states co-founder, Donna Nesselbush. Co-founder Joseph Marasco adds, “We are very proud to support the life-changing work of The Providence Center.”
