The city of Central Falls has made national news because of its financial problems. It emerged from bankruptcy last year. Baldwin also contributed $10,000 two years ago to the Central Falls library to help it reopen after it was forced to close because of financial problems.
WLNE-TV reports that the chess team needs $8,000 to fund the trip to the national chess tournament in Tennessee. The team has competed in the national tournament six times.
