Your generosity will fill 10 Cares Thanksgiving food baskets
NBC 10 is partnering with Shaw's, The Salvation Army and Telemundo Providence this holiday season to provide Thanksgiving food baskets for 3,000 families in need in Southern New England.
You can contribute by donating nonperishable food items at participating Shaw's supermarkets in Southern New England through Monday. Look for marked shopping carts inside Shaw's stores in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.
Requested items for each basket include instant potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, pie filling, pie crust mix, canned corn, peas and other canned vegetables, soup, biscuit mix, cake, muffin, brownie and bread mixes, pumpkin pie filling, rice, and pasta and spaghetti sauce.
Shaw's will provide 3,000 $10 gift cards to be used for turkeys or other groceries. The Salvation Army will sort and distribute the food to families.
