Spreading Joy This Season

The EBCAP AmeriCorps Team is all about spreading cheer this holiday season. For some it is the most wonderful time of the year, but for many it is a very difficult time. That is why we have gone beyond our everyday responsibilities to provide a little extra joy this season.

For Thanksgiving, we packaged and distributed over 200 baskets of food to those in need. This month we are working with a program called Adopt-A-Family. Adopt-A-Family provides gifts to families who normally would not be able to afford them. We also helped to distribute toys to families who receive services from the Rhode Island Department of Human Services last week.

It is great that we can do things outside of our daily responsibilities to help others. It is also important to remember that the best way to make someone’s day is to show that you care. Whether it is giving a gift, lending a hand, donating your time or simply listening to someone who has no one to talk to, one good deed can go a long way.
