NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW! NEW!
We have been working all year and we hope that you are excited for the upcoming Toy Run! The date has been set, the location secured and the festivities are being arranged. On October 16th we will take a scenic ride from CCRI in Lincoln down to Kinsley Avenue in Providence where the USMC Reserve will await to collect your generous toy donations. This is a long standing tradition that we all are proud of; it brings our community together for the betterment of all. This selfless act of giving toys to children in need is both fulfilling and the entire day is a whole lotta fun! We hope you will join us next month and show your support of the Rhode Island community. As always we are grateful for the Toy Run Sponsors; they provide the funds to host the event. We are still seeking sponsors and hope that you will consider making a donation. None are too small to make a difference. We also offer various sponsor levels that come with special gifts! These are detailed below. Please contact Mike Gorman at 401-556-3263 or mgormancpa at yahoo.com to become a sponsor. Thanks for all your support!
