Still time to donate to Children's Friend

PROVIDENCE - A local nonprofit is asking for your help in making sure at–risk youth have a happy and healthy holiday season.

Children's Friend in Providence is in the middle of sorting donations for the state's most vulnerable children. That's kids who are living in foster care, poor conditions, or may have been abused.

This year's drive is being held in memory of Joseph Silva, a longtime volunteer who recently passed away.

"Christmas was a very special holiday to Joe, and it was so important that a child  not wake up on Christmas morning and not have anything, and he wanted to make sure every kid in Rhode Island would have something they could call special on that holiday," said David Caprio, President and CEO of Children's Friend.

Children's friend is still accepting clothing, toys, and accessories.
