Needy families fed on holiday

We would like to thank the Salvation Army and Shaw's Market for donating 25 food baskets and turkey coupons for needy families in our community for Thanksgiving. Susan Brayman and I coordinated and picked-up the baskets from the Army's state office in Providence and distributed them in Jamestown.

Also, at this time, a big thank you goes out to the local organizations and businesses of Jamestown including the Jamestown Yacht Club, Jamestown Junior Women's Club, Conanicut Marina, Bank of America and the local churches for providing donations for families who are experiencing a financial hardship this holiday season. We're sure there are many more who are doing their part to make the holidays a happy one for those less fortunate. Thanks again for your help!
