10 Cares Thanksgiving

Southern New Englanders showed their generosity Thursday by raising about $83,000 in the 10 Cares Thanksgiving Telethon for The Salvation Army.

Proceeds will be used to provide Thanksgiving food baskets to families in Southern New England.

The phone lines may be closed, but you can still donate by texting FEEDRI to 71777 or by donating online.

The following are suggested donations, but your contribution at any level makes a difference:

  • $25 - One Small Food Basket
  • $45 - One Medium Food Basket
  • $70 - One Large Food Basket
  • $125 - Five Small Food Baskets
  • $225 - Five Medium Food Baskets
  • $350 - Five Large Food Baskets

You can also help support 10 Cares Thanksgiving by donating nonperishable food items at participating Shaw's supermarkets in Southern New England.

Look for marked shopping carts inside Shaw's stores in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts from Nov. 6-23.
