When Rhode Islanders begin helping out the Meeting Street School with its annual telethon on WPRI Channel 12 Jan. 25, they will be funding, in part, programs for the schoolâ€™s students that build relationships with students at other schools and the community at large.
One of those programs, Best Buddies, gained the limelight for last yearâ€™s fundraiser, as it brought in over $809,000 in nonoperational support for Meeting Street, a sum the school hopes to top this year, according to Meeting Street spokeswoman Amanda Mullen.
