Local 23 Toy Drive Benefit

IATSE Local 23 is proud to announce a toy drive benefiting families of students attending CCRI Providence Campus. The CCRI Counseling and advising Center has identified approximately 15 families (25 kids) that could use our help to have a great christmas. At time of writing, gifts are still needed for the following children:
-Girls, ages 5 years – 9 months, varying ethnicities
-Boys, ages 14 years – 10 months, varying ethnicities
At this time, we are not accepting cash or gift card donations. Instead, we ask that you sign up for a specific child, purchase a thoughtful gift (approx $20 limit), then drop it off unwrapped to Ryan, no later than Dec 10th
If you’d like to participate and help make a child’s holiday a little brighter, please see Ryan Kelley or text him at (307) 413-1718
