Local 1554-T of the New England Joint Board, UNITE HERE of Coventry, RI, sponsors a Christmas Giving Tree Program. After more than two decades of adopting local families at Christmas they will again be keeping the tradition alive as they kick off their twenty first year with fund raising events and raffles. Then, once again the tree will go up and the tags with the names of children who won’t go wanting will be on it starting the day after Thanksgiving. Since the program’s modest beginning in 1992, the Local has worked with various agencies to sponsor families from Coventry, West Warwick, Cranston, Scituate, Foster, Warwick, Providence, Westerly and Central Falls. In this time they have helped several hundred individuals in more than 95 families and hundreds of additional underprivileged children. Each year they adapt their program depending on the needs of the adopted families and their budget. Local 1554-T looks forward to another successful season.
Donations are always appreciated to raise funds to help supply clothes, food and gifts to families in our area.
