Holiday Support

Become a beacon of hope during the holiday season.

The holiday season is a time for warmth, togetherness, and giving. It’s a time when we come together as a community to support those in need and bring joy to families who may be facing challenges. This year, Family Service of Rhode Island invites you to be a part of our Annual Holiday Support Drive – a heartfelt initiative that aims to make the holidays brighter for local families who could use a helping hand.

How to get involved:

For individuals/families: Individuals and/or families can get involved by conducting a community-wide drive, making a donation, or by ‘adopting’ a family.

For businesses/groups: Local businesses and their employees can get involved by hosting a giving tree, serving as a toy drop off location, or conduct an internal toy drive!

Gift Collection:

Gift collection will start on Monday, October 23rd, and end on Wednesday, December 6th. Items can be dropped off at our offices on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9a-2p or at any participating Shaw’s Supermarket or Grieco Automotive Group location. 

Donations must be new, no used items are accepted.
