If you've been out and about in North Kingstown in the past few hours, you may be wondering what the deal is with the camouflaged-colored paint cans at select local businesses.
Eighteen North Kingstown businesses (and one South Kingstown business!) will be collecting donations for the . This year's event benefits military families in need and the proceeds from these military-inspired paint cans will go straight to families in Rhode Island.
But, this is more than just collection cans on a counter. Because North Kingstown loves competition (!), we want to see which business can raise the most money for the Heels & Wheels Foundation.
The business that collects the most money will win two tickets the Heels gala on June 1 (to either keep or donate), a Patch goodies gift basket and (of course) bragging rights.
The competition runs from April 25 to May 23. Collections cans will be at the following locations:
- Blue Hydrangea
- Sydney Rae's
Love Wilson's, Beach Rose, Updike's or any other North Kingstown shop! Support them and donate to a great cause at their store!
If you own a local business and want to join in on the friendly competition, contact Patch editor Samantha Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
