Holiday Giving Program
On behalf of the North Kingstown Holiday Giving Program, I would like to thank the community for your generosity and compassion this holiday season for families in need in North Kingstown. The Holiday Giving Program is coordinated through the North Kingstown Senior and Human Services Department located at Beechwood, A Center For Life Enrichment and to be successful involves the entire community. Over 350 families in North Kingstown were provided gifts and/or food.
Of special note is the generosity again this year of St. Paul’s Espiscopal Church in Wickford. Church members, coordinated by ‘Pinky’ Sweet Holland, prepared and delivered holiday food baskets to over 100 families. We would also like to thank Karla Driscoll, Bonnie Smith and the North Kingstown Food Pantry is assisting with the distribution of Food gift certificates.
