Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence Collecting Toys for the 2011 Holidays

[ 0 ] December 10, 2011 |

With the December holidays right around the corner, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence have announced an effort to collect toys for underprivileged children. Many Rhode Island families, particularly those hit hard by the recession, are struggling to make ends meet and may be challenged to provide gifts for their children. In response, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence are asking the community to help make the holidays brighter for children in-need.

Between now and December 22, 2011 members of the community are encouraged to drop-off new unwrapped toys to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence located at 550 Wickenden Street in Providence. Toy donations will be accepted Monday through Friday from 9AM-5PM. Donated toys are needed for both boys and girls.

To get involved with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence and support their efforts, visit or call (401) 444-0750.
