Summer is Nearly Here!

Although this rainy weather is no indication, summer is truly right around the corner and we are gearing up for our summer program.   Sadly, the start of the summer often means an end to services that our families rely on throughout the school year.

The Summer Learning and Enrichment program is an important educational experience for children in need and an opportunity to build the proper skills to enter kindergarten ready to learn. Children with the highest need are given priority, especially those in vulnerable situations.  Invest in our children and help them build the foundation for the future:
•            $165 will fund one child for one week
•            $742.50 will fund a child for half the summer.
•            $1,485 will fund a child for the entire summer

You can have make a difference in a child’s life this summer.  Please support the Children’s Friend Summer Learning & Enrichment Program.  Your generosity creates opportunities for Rhode Island’s most vulnerable children. Your tax deductible contribution can be made online here.

Without you, our children would not have an opportunity to learn, have access to safe play, or healthy, balanced nutrition all summer.  Families are strengthened by creating safe and nurturing environments for children during the crucial early years, and by helping parents gain access to the resources, education, and support that they need. In this way, children are given the foundation to help them live healthy and productive lives.  Thank you for supporting children and families in need and for providing a safe and engaging summer experience for our children.
