ORGANIZATION: Children's Friend

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

Our families are always in need of basic necessities and items. Below are some ideas for things that you can collect among your family, friend, co-workers, community groups, and anyone willing to lend a helping hand.

Donation Drive Opportunities

  • Toys - any size, any age group, any gender! In this challenging economy, toys are low on most families' priority list.
  • New Winter Coats - Many of our children and families face the winter without a warm outer coat. Gloves, hats and snow boots help too!
  • Gift Cards - to clothing stores, department stores, grocery stores. And also for fun experiences, like zoos, parks and movie theatres.
You set up when and where you will accept donations, and choose a closing date. We can provide collection boxes and signs so it is known to all that the donations will be distributed by our agency. It would be most helpful if you can deliver your donations to our 153 Summer Street, Providence location.
