You Can Help

There are countless ways to help Children’s Friend make a difference in the lives of Rhode Island’s most vulnerable children.

Donate something from our wish list to help low-income and foster families meet the needs of their children. Support our annual appeal or make a donation anytime throughout the year. Participate in or sponsor our Children’s Friend Walk & Run, or our Investing In Our Children Luncheon. Visit Panera Bread and contribute to Operation Dough-Nation. Become a Foster Parent. Sponsor a family during our annual Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive. Give to the United Way. Include Children’s Friend in your estate planning. Volunteer to organize a baby food drive, diaper drive, or clothing drive for our families. Volunteer to read to the children in our classrooms. Call us and suggest your own idea!

Thanks to an endowment that covers our administrative costs at Children’s Friend, all contributions go directly to provide programs and services for needy children and families.
