Town Holiday Donation Program

Human Services is still accepting families who want to be adopted.   We have a lengthy list of donors who are waiting to be matched with their adopted family.

Families in need should contact Department of Senior / Human Services (DSHS) as soon as possible.  Those needing assistance in providing gifts for their children during the December holidays can complete an application at the Department’s office, located at the Swift Community Center, 121 Peirce Street or call 886-8638.  The deadline to complete an application is Friday, December 1st.  Applications received after December 1st will be matched with donors contingent on availability. Donor and recipient personal information is strictly confidential.  Gifts will be delivered, unwrapped to the Swift Community Center by Monday, December 18th.  Each adopted family will be contacted to make arrangements for gift distribution.

Holiday Dinners

The East Greenwich Holiday Giving Program will distribute baskets and meals to residents in need. East Greenwich families who need help should call DSHS at 886-8638 to request a holiday food basket. The deadline to register for a December basket is Wednesday, November 29th.  The Department also provides a prepared meal with all the trimmings to East Greenwich seniors and spouses ages 55 and older and disabled individuals of any age, who will be alone for the holidays.

If you and your spouse are 55 or older, disabled, East Greenwich residents, and will be alone for the holidays, Senior Services will provide a prepared meal with all the trimmings. The meal includes a dinner roll, garden salad, turkey with gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables and dessert. The deadline to register for a December holiday meal is Wednesday, December 6th.
