WANT TO GIVE HELP?
Donate Food or run a Food Drive
Every gift matters, from a $10 supermarket gift card or cans of soup from your pantry to a large-scale food drive at your office or school.
Donate Toys or run a Toy Drive
You can make Christmas merry for a local child. We need new toys and gift cards for children from birth to age 18 for Santa’s Workshop.
Volunteer at Santa’s Workshop
We will need guides, gift wrappers, and more for Santa’s Workshop on Monday, December 18th and Tuesday, December 19th. Call or email us about this opportunity: Nancy Harten email@example.com or 401.846.4828 ext 103
In 2016, the MLK provided meal baskets to 271 families at Thanksgiving, and 328 families at Christmas. 513 local children received their Christmas gifts through Santa’s Workshop. We need your help to provide help for families across Newport County.
