Food + Items

Food and Item Donations

Food & Item DonationsWe accept donations of new and used items, as well as food, to help stretch our budget and to give to the mothers and children when they leave to help furnish and supply their apartments.

Due to limited space and staff, items are accepted Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Weekend donations are by appointment.

Before dropping anything off, we ask that you phone us at 401/847-2021.

If you are interested in adopting a family, or learning about wish lists or the names and ages of the children we serve, please give us a call!

For Thanksgiving, we would appreciate turkeys or preferably gift cards for turkeys, fresh vegetables (potatoes, squash, celery, green beans, corn), stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, pies, nuts, olives.

Gift Card donationsFor Christmas, we assist current and former residents through an adopt-a-family program.  Each family writes a “wish list” that is provided to a generous community member or group.  During the week before Christmas, donors bring gifts to Lucy’s Hearth and staff and volunteers wrap and distribute presents to our many needy families.  For more information about adopting a family, please contact us!
