Newport Restaurant Group (NRG) donated $64,000 to local nonprofits as a result of its annual, year-round gift card program, with 2023 exceeding the previous year’s fundraising total by more than $4,000. Through the program, $2 from every gift card purchase is donated to area nonprofits fighting food insecurity. Since the program’s inception in 2019, over $214,000 has been distributed to local agencies. “So many of our neighbors face food insecurity on a daily basis, and we are grateful to the wonderful organizations in our region that work tirelessly to provide relief,” said Paul O’Reilly, President and Chief Executive Officer, NRG. “We are honored to have the opportunity to support this work, and we thank our incredible guests without whom this donation would not be possible.” The 2023 recipients include the Aquidneck Community Table, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, RI Community Food Bank, and Hope’s Harvest in Rhode Island and the Brookline Food Pantry, The Food Project and Centre Street Food Pantry in Massachusetts. In addition to the financial support, NRG employee owners volunteer with these organizations throughout the year in a variety of ways. The 2024 gift card program is ongoing.
