West Side Schools Food Drive

  • WBNA Headquarters 1560 Westminster Street Providence, RI, 02909 United States (map)

Join WBNA and the West Side Kids Committee in supporting a community-led food drive to help families at Asa Messer Elementary, Carl Lauro Elementary and West Broadway Middle Schools.

Donations of new canned and boxed food items can be dropped off through November 10 at WBNA Headquarters (M-Th) and at WBNA's Trick or Treat on Dexter Street event on October 29.

We are also collecting $20 gift cards (easily donate one online!) to nearby grocery stores that will be included in Holiday Food Baskets distributed to families before the Thanksgiving holiday. Please help us achieve our goal of collecting at least 80 individual $20 gift cards by donating a gift card now! Donate a gift card online through Monday, November 14.

Many thanks to WBNA staff and board members who have generously kicked off our Food Drive by already purchasing grocery gift cards!
