DISTRIBUTION WEEK

                     2018 Distribution Week Schedule

           Sunday, December 9th  - Thursday, December 14th
                                                 Elks Lodge
                                            380 Social Street
                                       Woonsocket, RI 02895

Preparing gifts for Dropoff:   

  • Each gift must be wrapped, and labeled with the Family Number and Child's first name. We ask for this to help identify the Family number if a bag breaks, or the outer label falls off.  For example:

  • Package the wrapped gifts for each Family in sturdy, thick, 30-gal plastic bags. Please avoid large, red Santa sacks or 55 gal trash bags, as they become too heavy, and very difficult for the Volunteers and Recipients to carry.
  • Identify each bag of gifts with the Family Number, total number of bags for the Family, and the number of that particular bag in succession. For example, a Family #123, consisting of 3 bags, would be:
                Family #123                                     Family #123                               Family #123
                    1 of 3                                                 2 of 3                                           3 of 3
