It Takes a Community

The final days of our 2017 Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive are upon us and we are sprinting to the finish to ensure that we meet our goal of serving 1,550 families.  There has been such an amazing and immediate outpouring of support to help us close the gap of covering our final 300 families.

Today, I was completely inspired by the donations that came in in response to our media coverage over the weekend.  So many people – individuals, and corporations have come out to support our Holiday Drive — the hundreds of volunteers and sponsors who lend the support needed to – are our true heroes who help us spread hope and joy this holiday season and help our families make lasting holiday memories with their children.  We cannot thank you enough for all you do.
There’s still time to support families in need this holiday.  General donations (all ages) of children’s toys and books, new coats, diapers, warm clothing, and pajamas can be dropped off at our Administration building located at 153 Summer Street in Providence, RI.  These donations will go directly to families in need. Monetary donations can also be made here.


From our family at Children’s Friend, may you have a wonderful holiday and a very happy New Year!
