As challenging economic times continue, opportunities to help area families have increased. East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) is currently seeking sponsors for its annual Adopt a Family program.
EBCAP provides a wish list of a family to individual sponsors, showing what an adopted family would like for gifts. The wish list includes sizes for clothing items and gift suggestions to make for easy shopping. Individual gifts are wrapped by a sponsor and dropped off at St. Mark's Church on Turner Avenue in Riverside or the Mary V. Quirk Head Start Center, located on Main Street, Warren, RI. The drop off deadline is Dec. 15, 2010.
Families in East Providence, Barrington, Warren and Bristol are served by the program.
Businesses, organizations, families, neighborhood groups and individuals may be sponsors. Signing up is easy – just call 435-7876 to obtains the wish list of an area family and experience the joy of helping others this holiday season.
