For most of us the Christmas Season is filled with great joy and thanksgiving. For some of our less fortunate Aquidneck Island neighbors it is a time of discouragement, hunger and despair. Many families lack sufficient financial resources to cover the cost of housing, heating, food, clothing, medical care, etc. This situation has been made much more challenging by the current economic down turn. The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center provides food baskets for Christmas to local families. Please help them to continue to stock the food pantry and fill the Christmas food baskets by contributing non-perishable food items to the St. Mary's Food Drive. Blue collection bins are located 24/7 in the Church, the Gibbs House, and the St. George's Chapel.
