What is Necessities for Neighbors?

Necessities for Neighbors is an initiative of SVDP Rhode Island and it’s Next Gen youth and young adult program.  SVDP RI is dedicated to helping those in need with food and direct assistance. The purpose of this program is to engage youth and young adults in their community.

After your collection, all of the donations go to “Home Base,” where Next Gen and youth volunteers sort and bag the toiletries in drawstring backpacks or decorated boxes. The bags are then delivered to our Neighbors in need through various means.

How about Notes for Neighbors?

Individuals, groups, and classes write notes of encouragement to our struggling neighbors.  Notes should be index card size (3” x 5”) and be filled with bright colors and words of cheer!  The notes will be included in “necessities” packages.  Notes can be mailed to SVDP Rhode Island, ATTN:  Notes for Neighbors, PO Box 40605, Providence, RI 02940.
