A Wonderful Holiday Giving Program

The Holiday Giving event has become an integral part of our overall giving program and consists of two distinct elements: (a) Thanksgiving food drive; and (b) Holiday Giving Tree.

Because Wave has offices in both Warwick, RI and Pawtucket, RI, we make sure that our programs serve both areas. Accordingly, our three Warwick Offices support the RI Family Shelter while the Pawtucket Office supports St. Edwards Church in Pawtucket.

This year more than $2,000 in non-perishable food, paper goods, cleaning supplies and gift certificates for turkeys was collected for the food drives. This exceeded last year’s goal by over 20%.

Our Giving Trees were decorated with gift tags bearing the name, age and gift request of a child either residing or having formerly resided at the shelter, or a member of St. Edward’s. Thanks to the generous outpouring of employees, members and friends, we were able to make the holidays a little happier for kids, including a special Christmas party at the RI Family Shelter.
