Planet Earth is just one of over one hundred billion planets in our Milky Way Galaxy.
In the Universe there are estimated to be over three hundred billion galaxies outside of our own.
Step back and examine our Planet from our place in the Universe and it becomes easier to see we are all part of one organism sharing. We travel through the cosmos together!
Thinking about the Earth's place in our Galaxy within the greater Universe helps us better understand
we are all one and the health of one is the health of all.

RHODE ISLAND COMMUNITY FOOD BANK
As COVID-19 continues to impact our community through the closing of businesses and schools, households at risk of hunger become increasingly more vulnerable. The Rhode Island Community Food Bank has been working hard to distribute food to our neighbors in need through their statewide network of food pantries and meal sites. They've also been adapting operations to meet the increased demand, particularly among vulnerable populations like children and seniors
CROSSROADS OF RHODE ISLAND
Because of underlying health issues, weakened immune systems and limited access to healthcare, individuals and families experiencing homelessness are at a greater risk of contracting the Coronavirus. Crossroads Rhode Island continues their ongoing efforts to move people out of congregate shelters and into housing, where it is easier for their clients to avoid infection and practice good hygiene.
THE WOONASQUATUCKET RIVER WATERSHED COUNSEL
The Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council is prioritizing the work they do to ensure the health and safety of people who live within the Woonasquatucket River Greenway. The Greenway is open and available as a safe space for walking, biking, and enjoying nature. Many who live in the urban sections of the watershed don't have access to vehicles to travel to our region’s parks and other natural resources. The Greenway serves as a vital corridor for transportation and an essential place to breathe fresh air. They are happy to report that folks who live in or near the Greenway are out and about enjoying the early springtime while maintaining safe social distance.
