Warwick Vets Best Buddies Give Back through “Giving Friday”
On Friday, March 4th the Warwick Vets chapter of Best Buddies held their first “Giving Friday,” a day where members, during one of their meetings find a way to give back to their local community. This month, they donated over 40 bags of toiletries and food to “Called to Serve.” Called to Serve started out as an outreach program in February of 2015. They provide items for the homeless population in Providence, Cranston, and West Warwick. Each bag consisted of a toothbrush, toothpaste, a pair of hand warmers, tissues or a pair of socks, cough drops, a cereal bar, peanut butter crackers, cheese crackers, almonds and one additional snack. Items were donated by the Warwick Vets Best Buddies chapter.
