West Broadway Neighborhood Association organizes neighbors and businesses on the West Side of Providence to preserve and promote our diverse, historic, urban community as a safe, vibrant, and sustainable place to be SWELL (Shop, Work, Eat, Live, and Learn locally).
Bring your gently used or new coats, gloves, hats, and scarves to WBNA through November 20. Part of our annual Live Local, Give Local community giving campaign, all donations go to the Buy Nothing Day Coat Exchange, which has brought coats and warm things to children and families for 22 years.
As part of our Live Local, Give Local community giving campaign this holiday season, WBNA is collecting new and unwrapped toys for children ages 18 months to 13 years of age in support of West End Community Center's annual toy drive. Thank you for considering those in need in our community as you plan your holiday giving.
