Each year, Children’s Friend provides gifts of clothing and toys to make the winter holidays a special time for the most vulnerable children in Rhode Island.
This year we are working to help over 1,200 Rhode Island families and their children. Thanks to you, their holidays will be brighter.
When you choose to participate in the Holiday Drive you will be matched with a family or a child in need. Shop for toys and necessities from a child’s wish list and deliver them to Children's Friend on a pre-scheduled date.

Other Ways You Can Help -
- GIFT CARDS: Our families are also in need of gift cards to department stores, convenience stores, and markets.
- VOLUNTEERING: There are many volunteer opportunities at the Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive. They include organizing the gifts, assisting sponsors when they drop off gifts, handing out gifts to workers, and more! For more information please contact Sarah Martone, Development Associate at: (401) 276-4344 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- HOLD A DRIVE: Assorted clothing and toys are always needed to support our families. The older children in the families always need items such as books and music. Frequently asked for items are jackets, sweaters, dolls, and games.
