President's Message
Our members are amazing. This month you've contributed pajamas to teens in the Foster Forward Program, filled a barrel for the Rhode Island Food Bank, and ensured that more than three dozen elders will receive gifts for the holidays via Elves for Elders!

If you missed out on those opportunities and are looking for a way to share the love this season please consider:

Foster Forward is seeking donations for its Holiday Gifts for Teens program: mail or deliver checks payable to Foster Forward to 55 South Brow Street, East Providence, RI 02914. Monetary donations are used to purchase American Express gift cards for teens, so they can truly get the items they need. You can also "adopt" one or more adolescents living in a group home to fulfill their wish lists--contact Kate Bronner at
(401) 438-3900 x108 or for more information.

As you look ahead to the New Year, please mark your calendars for our January 7th 2020 Vision event and for our February 5th General Membership Luncheon Meeting. Details for both, and much more, below!

Happy New Year!

Mary Coutu, President
