  • Warm Hands, Warm Hearts Hat & Mitten Drive
    We are proud to sponsor the Warm Hands, Warm Hearts Hat & Mitten Drive this year. Apart from setting up drop off locations at our four facilities in East Greenwich, Warwick, Tiverton and Woonsocket for generous folks to drop off any winter clothing, Petro will also award five families with 100 gallons worth of free heating oil.
  • Holiday Season Blood Drive
    During the holiday season, we often see a decline in blood donations, but the need for blood does not go away. We ask you to give thanks this holiday season by giving blood! The Petro Home Services team in Warwick held a blood drive on Tuesday, November 19th, 2013 and lots of local neighbors came to donate blood, helping others in need.
  • Toys for Tots
    Help us put more smiles on children's faces this holiday season by joining us in donating to the US Marine Corp Reserve's Toys for Tots program. We are always delighted to be a part of this annual program in by having our Woonsocket, Warwick, Tiverton, and East Greenwich offices designated as Official Collection Sites. We will be collecting new, unopened (not gift wrapped) toys for kids aged 0-15. Popular toys that kids are asking for this year, include: Barbies, toy trucks (even small ones like Matchbox trucks), sporting equipment, Transformers toys, and/or superhero toys. However, no toy is too big or small and every one that you donate will help local Rhode Island children and their families have a happy holiday season. Please join us in donating a toy and being a part of this worthy local cause. To donate a toy, you can drop it off to any of the following RI Petro office locations from now through Wednesday, December 19th:

    50 Houghton Street
    Providence, RI 02904

    1182 River Street
    Woonsocket, RI 02895

    141 Knight Street
    Warwick, RI 02886

    East Greenwich:
    2579 South County Trail
    East Greenwich, RI

    550 Fish Road

    Thank you in advance for helping us make a child's holiday season an even more happy one this year.


  • Rhode Island Food Bank - Your local Petro team continues to work with the Rhode Island Food Bank to conduct food drives. Over the past six years, our employees have pulled together to collect and donate thousands of pounds of food during the early summer months, and assist children who no longer have the benefit of meals provided by their schools.
  • Toys for Tots - We are delighted to continue our tradition of having our Rhode Island offices serve as drop-off locations for the annual Toys for Tots program. Over the years, our team has cheerfully donated hundreds of toys for local children and families in need over the holiday season.
  • Community Blood Drive - Congratulations to our team members who participated in our second blood drive to assist the Rhode Island Blood Center. We look forward to coordinating more in the year ahead to help everyone in our community.
