On February 23, 2008, the Boston Globe reported that "Children's Friend & Service, an antipoverty group [and a Rhode Island Charity], is suing Rhode Island Hospital to force it to honor the bequest of a woman who donated $4,000 to the hospital in her will . . . before she died in 1912." The article reports that an employee of the Charity unearthed the bequest searching through the Charity's archives in preparation for the Charity's 175th anniversary.
