The Town Dock Gathers Gifts for Those in Need
This holiday season, The Town Dock continued the tradition of decorating their Narragansett locations with a Giving Tree. Each tree had tags on it identifying gifts to be donated to organizations in the local community: the Galilee Mission of Narragansett, the WARM Center of Westerly, and the Jonnycake Center of Peace Dale.
Again this year, The Town Dockers showed a generous spirit with donations, providing:
- 24 bags filled with useful items such as hats, gloves, handwarmers, snacks, and hygiene products for 24 residents at the Galilee Mission.
- 22 gifts of toys, books, and gift cards for kids and teens to the Jonnycake Center.
- 16 presents including clothing, toys, books, for a family of four kids at the WARM Center.
The festivities continued as a group of employees took time out of their busy day to help sort, label, and wrap the gifts.
We were glad to provide a little bit of help to those in need and wish everyone a warm and happy holiday season.
