Did you know that 1 in 11 seniors face hunger each day?  That number might seem shocking but that is the reality.  If YOU had the opportunity to help change that statistic, would you?

Southern Rhode Island Volunteers has been bringing meals and support to over 45 seniors per month. With continued support from people like you, nutritious meals can continuously be provided to those who need it most. 

You can help us this #GIVINGTUESDAY, November 28th, by supporting our charitable on-line donation drive to help ensure meals and miles happen this season.  Just a $10 donation helps bring 275 meals a month to seniors in need in our community.  Please share this story and discover how good it feels to share the meaning of giving thanks.

A big thank you to our student volunteers from the Transition Academy of Westerly for all you do each week at SRIV.  We wish you all continued success.

Feeling Thankful for Food Delivery Volunteers

Sending out a special thank you to all the volunteers who delivered the Jonnycake Center of Peace Dale's special Thanksgiving groceries this morning! Over 80 deliveries were made and this would not have been possible without volunteers and those who donate food to make this program possible. Thank you for ensuring everyone enjoys a warm Thanksgiving meal!
