It’s October, New England’s trademark season for stunning foliage and hot apple cider. It is also a time for excitement across the region for most of our children. It marks the first official “day off” since summer (in honor of Christopher Columbus.) It buzzes with the anticipation of Halloween. But for our most vulnerable children, these markers can be meaningless. Because they are concerned with things no child should be.
Since 1834, Children’s FRIEND has been serving these children and their families. As a leading provider of child welfare, family support, and child development services, they make a happy, healthy start in life possible for these children. They give them the gift of the best possible chance for success in the future. Does this sound like a cause you would support? In addition to the annual luncheon, Children’s FRIEND provides ample volunteer and donation opportunities throughout the year and is partnered with the United Way.
United Methodist Elder Care, a nonprofit provider of long-term care, skilled nursing, rehabilitation, assisted living and independent living services for seniors
Operation Stand Down, a non-profit organization providing social services to United States Armed Forces veterans, helping them transition into civilian life.
The Children’s FRIEND annual Investing in Our Children luncheon will be held on Friday, October 19, 2018 beginning at 11:00 a.m. (registration and auction) at the Omni Providence Hotel (1 West Exchange Street in Providence).
