Annual Fill the Ram Van Toy and Clothing Drive
New and Unwrapped Toys and New Clothing
Help the less fortunate during the holidays
Thank you to all our associates, customers and the community for making this a huge success!!!
Every year, beginning nearly 70 years ago, Papa’s has held charitable giving drives during the holiday season to help feed or clothe families in need in the community. Each year the Papa’s family and our family of associates donate needed items, which are distributed to local charities and given to families for the holiday. Our collection efforts continue through the month of December with our Toy and Clothing Drive collecting new and unwrapped toys and new clothing to benefit the Prudence Crandell Center in conjunction with our friends at iHeartMedia Communities.
For over 43 years, Prudence Crandall Center has been a leader in our state’s efforts to reduce the devastating impact of domestic violence in the lives of victims, their children, and our community. All of the families who receive the donations are so appreciative of our efforts to make their holidays a little brighter. Each year our collection efforts grow and we are able to support more and more families in need. Our Fill-the-Van Toy and Clothing drive will continue through to December 16th. Your help filling the van, which is located next to our reception desk, is greatly appreciated. In addition to new unwrapped toys the Prudence Crandall Center has expressed the need for new warm pjs, slippers, twin-size comforters, sheets & blankets, socks & underwear, fleeces, etc. These essentials are CONSTANTLY in need. Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase items for families in need for the holidays. This tradition of giving back to the community, which goes back nearly 70 years, is very important to the Papa’s family and our family of associates.
