LIVE LOCAL, GIVE LOCAL
Join WBNA and the West Side Kids Committee in supporting our 2nd annual community-led food drive to help families in need at Asa Messer Elementary, Carl Lauro Elementary and West Broadway Middle Schools. This drive helps fill Holiday Food Baskets distributed to families before the Thanksgiving holiday.
Donations of new canned and boxed food items can be dropped off through November 13 at WBNA Headquarters (M-Th); at WBNA's Trick or Treat on Dexter Street event on Saturday, October 28; and at our donation bin locations at Hudson Street Deli (68 Hudson St), Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art (Th-Sun, 763 Westminster), Schasteâ (300 Broadway), Seven Stars Bakery (342 Broadway), and Sin (1413 Westminster St).
We are also collecting $20 gift cards (easily donate one online) to nearby grocery stores that will be included in Holiday Food Baskets. Please help us achieve our goal of collecting at least 80 individual $20 gift cards by donating a gift card now!
