Items for the basket will be accepted as of today. Donations can be made Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will benefit the Newport County Women's Resource Center. Donations must be brand new or hand-made and left unwrapped. Place them in the basket at the Town Hall, 93 Narragansett Ave. The last donations will be accepted until Friday, Dec. 12, at 4 p.m.
