COVENTRY â€” Members of the Western Rhode Island Civic Historical Society (WRICHS) were thrilled to have employees of a Providence company volunteering their time at the Paine House last Friday morning as a way to help out non-profits throughout the state.
Society member Norma Smith explained that the WRICHS found the company, R&D Simulia, on the Preserve Rhode Island listserv.
â€śThey came up and this company apparently does volunteer work one day a year so we responded to the ad,â€ť she explained.
Smith said the society was never aware that companies did this type of community service and â€śthatâ€™s one of the good things about Preserve Rhode Island, weâ€™re being made aware of different grants and projects.â€ť
David Duke, Simulation Apps QA Manager for Simulia, said although they are a â€śsoftware companyâ€ť that offers â€ś3D experience through realistic simulation,â€ť they take time out of their schedule one day a year to help non-profit organizations throughout the country.
