Our Holiday Giving Guide

Family Service of Rhode Island (FSRI) is working to assist hundreds Rhode Island families who might otherwise go without Thanksgiving meals, December holiday meals and gifts for their children in December. We need community support to make this happen! Can You Help? This is a meaningful giving opportunity for individuals, families, companies, community organizations, faith communities and more.

With so many opportunities available, it is easy to make giving or volunteering a part of your holiday traditions. The hardest part can be sorting through the many options to support Family Service of Rhode Island. 

Why Give

The holiday season can be an especially difficult time for the children and families we serve. Many of our families struggle to pay for basic winter necessities like heat or warm clothes and as we all know; the holidays can stress already tight budgets. Our Adopt-A-Family program connects  individuals, families, civic groups, and corporate teams with our clients in need. 


Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our volunteers, donors and business partners, nearly 300 local families had their holiday wishes filled in 2018 through Adopt-A-Family - receiving warm clothes, blankets, certificates for food and gifts for their children.
