CCAP's 2018 Holiday Giving Campaigns

CCAP's 2018 Holiday Giving Campaigns

The Holiday Giving Programs at CCAP help to bring the joy of the Holiday Season to our neighbors in need. Community support through donations from individuals and organizations for both our "Lending a Helping Hand"Holiday Food Drives and the CCAP Adopt-a-Family Program are critical to ensure the success of these programs.

CCAP "Lending a Helping Hand"Holiday Food Drives


Each month CCAP serves over 800 families in need at our Food Bank and we are seeing more and more families having trouble making ends meet and are unable to purchase needed food. The families we serve have lost their jobs, suffered an illness, or a different type of crisis, usually through no fault of their own.

Extra food for the holidays is an even bigger burden for families that need help.

We would like to ask you to join us in "lending a helping hand during the holidays" by hosting a CCAP food drive in your church, work place, service group, school or community.

Food needed: frozen turkey, canned corn, canned green beans, canned yams, boxed mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing, canned turkey gravy, canned cranberry sauce, pie crust, canned pie filling, rolls, or $35 grocery gift cards.

Please see the flyer below for a list of needed food items. All food and donations are due by Thursday, November 8, 2018 during business hours 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, 311 Doric Avenue, Cranston, RI 02920 (lower level.) We can also arrange pick-up.

Your support of CCAP is deeply appreciated, 100% of all donations through our CCAP Holiday Food Drive go directly to the families we support. For more information about CCAP and how you can "lend a helping hand" contact Joanne Gregory, Vice President of Social Services at 401-562-8333.

This Holiday Season, when you sit down with your family to celebrate the bounty in your life, another local family will be Giving Thanks for You.

CCAP Adopt-a-Family Program

Although reports say that the economy has improved, we are still seeing very fragile communities, and our families continue to struggle. We hope that you will assist us in bringing a happy holiday season to them.
The CCAP Adopt-a-Family Program helps hundreds of local families during the holiday and your commitment to this project would be greatly appreciated.

We makes it easy for you to extend your kindness and generosity to the families in need in our community by helping in two ways:

  • you can adopt a family and we can provide you with their wish list; or
  • you can make a monetary donation. A donation of $300 will adopt an entire family!

Your gift, large or small, can make a difference for a joyous holiday for a family in need.

All donations are due by Friday, December 14, 2018, 311 Doric Avenue, Cranston, RI 02910. For more information, please contact Joanne Gregory at 401-562-8333 or

Thank you once again for joining us in lending a helping hand and making a difference in our community.
