David Segal and Lincoln businessman Anthony Gemma. Lynch, Segal and Gemma have now endorsed Cicilline.

WOONSOCKET — Bank of America has honored Connecting for Children and Families with a $200,000 grant to grow its network of support services for struggling families.

“It's just a tremendous opportunity for Woonsocket,” said Curtin. “It allows us to strengthen the community and provide additional support for families who are in most need.”
