Every year, OSEEC works together with its service sites and members of the community in order to host a camp for children that are temporarily living at Crossroads Rhode Island, the leading homeless services organization in the state. Through Crossroads Camp, the homeless youth of Crossroads RI will visit three of OSEEC’s partner sites: Save the Bay, Norman Bird Sanctuary, and the Roger Williams Park Zoo, in addition to local parks and natural areas in mid-August.
Currently, we are working at securing food donations for daily breakfast, snacks, and lunch for every child. We are also accepting donations of: Backpacks, Towels, Reusable water bottles, Bottles of sunscreen, Rash guards, and Snorkel gear.
We’ve compiled a list of possible donation sites that we will be soliciting, but if anyone else has any information, tips, or would like to donate, please feel free to contact myself at firstname.lastname@example.org or Gerlisa at email@example.com.
Thanks for all of your help!
