A Helping Hand
Hundreds of Rhode Islanders working at restaurants, hotels and in the tourism industry have gotten a helping hand over the past 18 months from a special fund created by the a nonprofit arm of The Rhode Island Hospitality Association. Its mission is to give financial help to those with unexpected expenses. Jim Hummel introduces us to the manager of a Providence restaurant who woke up one day in a hospital bed after undergoing emergency neurosurgery.
