    Multi-Media Company Steer LLC Teams with Family Service of Rhode Island to Deliver Supplies
     

    PROVIDENCE, RI, April 8, 2020--Steer LLC, a Providence-based multi-media company, has teamed with Family Service of Rhode Island’s BE SAFE campaign to deliver disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizers and other items to help the state’s low-income residents “be safe” from COVID-19.
     
    Steer LLC has donated use of a van and a driver to deliver “BE SAFE kits” to the doorsteps of needy children, seniors, adults and families. It has even customized the graphics on the van to raise awareness of “be safe.”
    “The idea started about a week ago when they were filming a free public service announcement about our ‘BE SAFE’ campaign,” said Margaret Holland McDuff, Family Service of Rhode Island’s CEO. “They wanted to help even more to ensure assistance for any Rhode Islander needing cleaning products to prevent spread of COVID-19 as well as food and other essentials.”
     
    “Family Service of Rhode Island’s BE SAFE campaign captured our imagination as an innovative response to COVID-19,” said Carlos Toro, Steer LLC’s founder. “We are grateful to partner with Family Service of Rhode Island to bring critically needed help to anyone in need in Rhode Island.”

    Anyone wishing to donate to the campaign should text BESAFE to 44321, call 401-519-2269, or visit www.familyserviceri.org/besafe

    People needing help should visit that web address or call 401-519-2283.

    In addition to Steer LLC, Family Service of Rhode Island’s BE SAFE campaign is sponsored by Bank of America, Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses, the CharterCARE Foundation, the Rhode Island Foundation and the United Way of Rhode Island.
