PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The 45th Annual Meeting Street Telethon looked a lot different this year, but that didn’t mean it was any less heartwarming and meaningful.
12 News’ Mike Montecalvo, Shannon Hegy and Tony Petrarca hosted the event, which raised $506,099 thanks to viewers’ generous donations and support.
The Telethon is Meeting Street’s largest annual fundraiser which supports programs that serve thousands of local children of all abilities and their families. Last year, the event raised more than $1 million for the school.
Donations can be made by texting MST21 to 44321.
WPRI 12 is a proud annual sponsor of the Meeting Street Telethon.
