Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive


I hope everyone enjoyed a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday and an exciting shopping weekend for those adventurous shoppers among us. The winter holiday season is now in full swing and we are surrounded by the sights and sounds of the season.

This also means that our Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive is in full swing. The Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive matches generous donors with the needy families we serve. The generous donors receive wish lists that our children and families have completed, and the donors buy gifts for the kids so that they will have some new gifts of toys and clothing this holiday season.

Our goal this year is to serve 1,450 families in the Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive. These are all families that are involved with Children’s Friend. To date, generous donors have sponsored 630 families, so we still have 820 families to go and only a few weeks left. Please consider sponsoring a family alone, as part of a work group, or in coordination with other generous individuals.

You can visit www.spiritofgivingdrive.org or call 401-276-4346 to learn more or to select a family to sponsor. Please also share this message with others to help us reach our goal of assuring 1,450 needy families with young children experience the magic of the holiday season.
