Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive
December 23, 2016 - For the past four years, LLB and staff have been donating to families in the Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive run by the Children’s Friend organization in Providence. Children’s Friend matched LLB this year with a family from Pawtucket and we were sent their Wish Lists for their children. The Wish List includes the names, ages, sizes, and gift requests for each child in the family as well as a summary of the family’s current circumstances. Items that are commonly requested include winter clothes, coats, cold weather accessories, diapers, dolls, and educational toys.This year, we were able to purchase everything on our family’s wish list. Clothes, especially winter jackets and snow pants, and toys made their way to our office to be sorted and packed for delivery. There was also a grocery store gift card for the parents. To add a festive element to their Christmas morning, we included wrapping paper and supplies for the family's use.
