Holiday Giving


The generosity of Rhode Island residents during the Holiday Season warms our hearts.

Each holiday season reinforces the strength of our motto “caring for our community,” as Child & Family’s Holiday Giving program supports children, families and elders who are unable to enjoy the holiday season in the special way that most of us take for granted. During designated drop off days our hallways are filled to the brim with donations of food, gift cards, toys, clothing, cash and other gifts. We are grateful for the contributions from school groups, clubs, organizations, businesses, individuals and some of our own employees.

Thanksgiving Basket Program

You provide a Thanksgiving basket of non-perishable food items for a family of 4 people and a gift certificate to purchase a turkey and other perishable items.  The need for Thanksgiving baskets is great, and you can sign up for multiple baskets.  Monetary donations or gift certificate to Shaw’s or Stop & Shop are also appreciated.

Adopt-A-Family Program

You provide toys and gifts for children.  In many cases these will be the only holiday gifts that they receive.  We provide you with a ‘wish list” and you shop for the child or children with whom you are matched.  As an alternative, we gladly accept generic gifts, gift certificates or monetary donations that we can use to shop for these children.
