4th Annual Holidays for Heroes Event


For the past three years the East Providence Community was able to spread our holiday cheer to our well deserving Veterans at the RI Veterans Home in Bristol as well as local nursing homes. With the help from our caring community we were able to give out 225 gift bags filled with items/cards last year. This year’s effort has begun. We are seeking items to fill gift bags for our Veterans.

Items requested:

Toiletries such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and shaving cream

Word search/puzzle books

Christmas cards with a personal message

Cash donations to purchase the items above

Donations can be dropped off to Tracy Capobianco at The Little Red Schoolhouse 20 Sprague Ave, Riverside, RI 02915

You can also email Rick Lawson at ricklawson69@gmail.com to arrange a pickup/dropoff of donations
