I was devastated to learn the news that a fire had destroyed the Prince Hall Masonic Temple earlier today. I was just there yesterday supporting their annual Christmas toy giveaway. This is such a loss for my community.
For years, the Masons have been doing important community work in South Providence by hosting food and toy giveaways in our neighborhood.
The membership and leaders have risen to the occasion time and time again to help those in need in our community. Their commitment to philanthropy, community engagement, and education has helped shape our City.
I join the chorus of voices offering my sympathies and will do all I can to help them rebuild so that they can continue in service to each other and the community.
