Local businesses raise money for Tiogue – Ricentral.com

COVENTRY In the wake of a fundraising discrepancy between Tiogue Elementary School and a Warwick frozen yogurt shop, local businesses from West Warwick and the surrounding areahave stepped up to help the schools PTA raise over $1,600 for ADA approved playground upgrades.

The Tiogue PTA hadan agreement with Menchies Frozen Yogurt on Quaker Lake in September of last year to collaborate on a fundraiser wherein if patrons visited the shop and mentioned the school a portion of the sale would be given to the PTA to go toward the playground improvements. By the end of the fundraiser in December, the school was owed $400 but was never able to collect the money.

According to Tiogue PTA President Jennifer Carlson, she had gone back and forth via email with franchise owners Nancy Gardiner and Christopher Metallo about when to collect the money to no avail. The agreement was that in return for the fundraiser the school would provide media coverage for the event, but Carlson said they were never able to finalize on a date and time.

Shortly after the story had been broken by local media outlets, the shop closed its doors permanently. In a post on their Facebook page, the owners apologized for the misunderstanding and said the closing was unrelated and due to contract confidentiality. They offered to sit down with Carlson and vice president Guy Suffoletto to sort out the matter, but Carlson declined, citing that both PTA members had reached out numerous times.

Last week West Warwick Town Councilman and local business owner Jason Messier, who had promoted the yogurt shop through his company Wicked Local RI, decided to pledge a $100 donation to the schools PTA in hopes that other businesses would follow suit. Sure enough, numerous others throughout Coventry, Warwick and West Warwick also made pledges to help and within days the PTA had over $1,600. Residents, too, decided to help out and contributed to the outpouring of support Carlson and Suffolletto received after news had broken. Businesses include The Panini Club, Gels Kitchen, Sport Clips Centre of New England, North East Bed Bug Services, Liberty Fence, Simplify Yoga, Sweatshop Fitness RI, and LaundryFly. The Coventry Police Department even chipped in their own $100 donation.

Jay took it upon himself to start a random act of kindness that snowballed into what it is today, said Suffolletto on Monday. Everything, 100 percent of it goes back to helping the kids.

Ifigured theyd get a couple of people who wanted to help, but they quadrupled the money in 6 days, said Messier. This is a perfect example of turning a negative into something much better.

Carlson said the outpouring of support has been amazing and even noted that the story has inspired many Tiogue parents to start becoming involved with or donating to the PTA more often. She said she encourages everyone to support their own local PTAs.

Its not even just the financial aspect of it, she said. Its so nice to have the community support with it. Businesses are just donating out of their own pockets and to us its amazing how people have stepped up.

Gels Kitchen Owner Angelica Penta pledged $200 as well as an additional $100 on behalf of her newest restaurant venture, Mike and Gels Pizza in Warwick. She is also spearheading an effort to connect the PTA with the Rhode Island Shriners, of which her father is a member, to help fund some of the playground project.

Whether they can or can't help we will do a fundraiser to make up for it, she said.

Carlson said the PTA hopes to start work on the playground improvements this summer to have something ready in time for the start of the new school year in the fall.

Northern Plaza residents report infestation of bed bugs, mice – Valley Breeze

2/28/2017

PAWTUCKET Keeping bugs and rodents out of Apartment 510 at the Northern Plaza is about as futile as bailing water from a sinking boat, says resident Irving Ortiz.

The single father of three children says hes been frustrated in his ongoing efforts to get the facilities management to do something about the never-ending parade of mice and bed bugs that invade his familys living space.

Ortizs kids all said theyve been bitten repeatedly by bed bugs and they often chase and kill mice.

Its disgusting, Ortiz told The Valley Breeze. Its not right.

Ortiz recounts recently using his sandal to bat a mouse down his fifth-floor hallway. No one in a modern American housing facility, including this Section 8 housing complex, should have to live in these conditions, he says.

A tour of Ortizs apartment and building revealed many dead bed bugs and extensive evidence of mice. Another resident and a city employee both confirmed the problems.

Ortiz produced pictures from the buildings laundry room showing piles of dead bed bugs. He said the bugs get into laundry and are then left behind when the load is finished.

City officials this week said they have a reactionary role when it comes to inspecting the Northern Plaza at 301 Main St. When someone calls with a complaint, building officials go to inspect their particular apartment to look for evidence, said Lauren Greene, communications and constituent affairs officer for Mayor Donald Grebien.

Greene said that Pawtucket code inspectors responded to complaints of mice and cockroaches at the Northern Plaza as recently as Nov. 1 of last year. But, inspectors found no evidence to back up the complaint.

The city also responded to mice complaints in November of 2015. At that time, inspectors did find rodent evidence and issued a second notice after a return visit found problems persisting, said Greene. The next visit after the second notice found that the problems had been addressed, she said.

Ortiz and another resident, who declined to give his name, said that spraying for bugs was once a common practice in the Northern Plaza, but both said they were told by a building manager that it no longer happens because its too expensive.

The owner of the building is listed as Northern Plaza Associates, care of Rhode Island Housing. Building management could not be reached.

A representative from Rhode Island Housing said after being informed of the issue this week that action would be taken. Dotty Valentini said no one from Northern Plaza has called her office about bugs or mice. She said the building manager is responsible to do so if residents complain. Routine examinations are regularly done and several exterminations are carried out if a problem is discovered, she said.

We check for everything, she said.

Emily Martineau, spokeswoman for Rhode Island Housing, said that the agency has an oversight role at the Northern Plaza as a lender and distributor of vouchers through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, but does not own the property.

Martineau said inspections have been done at the facility, including several last year, and no evidence of mice or bed bugs was found. The same was true during routine on-site monitoring in December, she said.

The Northern Plaza, an affordable housing high-rise, has about 100 apartments. Ortiz said his total rent is $1,300, but because hes disabled with a bad back, he pays $362 a month.

Despite making numerous calls to management over the past few months, he said the problems have persisted.

Ortiz, who is looking for another home that works for his family, said he does his best to maintain an immaculate apartment and stay on top of the mice and bug problems. He says he worries about diseases caused by bugs and rodents.

Im a clean freak, he said.

Ortiz showed the The Breeze at least 20 holes created by mice to get in through the walls. He said a woman in another apartment mentioned having mice but told him, they dont really bother me.

How dirty is that? he said.

Any residents who see an issue with rodents or bugs at the Northern Plaza Apartments is invited to call Pawtucket building inspectors at 401-728-0500 ext. 249.
