Welcoming generation of families since 1887
The 2016-2017 VITA season has begun! While we have recruited volunteers to assist with tax preparation, volunteers who help during tax prep days are always welcome. For more information, Roshni Darnal at 401-421-1095 for more information.
Health Promotion Coaches/Facilitators
Ever wanted to teach a class on staying healthy and active? We need volunteers to be trained as group facilitators for our A Matter of Balance and Chronic Disease/Self Management classes. Training times vary and classes run through the year. Contact Roshini Darnal at 401-421-1095 for more information.
We are currently recruiting for new Board positions. The Board of Directors meets once a month, on the 3rd Tuesday, from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm. We also ask that each Board member serve on a committee and commit to an additional 2 hours per month.
Host a food, toy, or clothing drive
The holiday season can be very difficult for many families, so we raise funds and host drives for food, toys, and children's clothing. In 2016, we helped over 500 families with Thanksgiving baskets and gifts for Christmas. Year round, we can always use non-perishable foods, gift certificates to grocery stores, and children's clothes. Please contact Norma Gonzalez at 401-421-1095 for more information or would like to host a holiday drive.
The Federal Hill FireHawks need you! Started in 2010, the Federal Hill FireHawks is a small Special Olympics team that is committed to growing the "Providence Team". We need coaches and volunteers to help with various sports, including bowling, track & field and basketball. Please contact Roshni Darnal at 401-421-1095 if you are interested in volunteering or would like to lead any FireHawks activities, please call Roshni Darnal at 401-421-1095.
Do you have a group interested in giving back to the community? We have many options for single time community service projects. Projects include painting, landscaping, food distribution, holiday gift wrapping and preparing meals for special events. Contact Norma Gonzalez at 401-421-1095 for more details.
