The mission of the Rhode Island Irish Coalition is to build relationships between the RIIC board and local businesses such as restaurants, pubs, salons, etc.
No money is needed from these generous Rhode Island entrepreneurs, only a partnership to help create awareness for our campaign. Our charitable campaigns are not about solicitation of every patron that walks through the door. We count on word of mouth communications, social media, and posters hung within the businesses for awareness. You may also see an event hosted by the RIIC to drum up awareness.
Our goal is to bring more people into these generous businesses while collecting toys for the poor children of Rhode Island. The children end up happy and businesses willing to take part in the community are rewarded with new customers.
Our favorite way for someone to donate is to come to one of our events or to visit one of the many businesses that collect toys with us each season. However, we understand life is busy around the holidays!! So now you can also purchase toys online through Amazon and they will be shipped directly to us. Check out our online list here !

Read about the amazing work that A Children's Friend does year in and year out for the poor children of Rhode Island. It gives us great joy to drop off a huge truckload of toys to these wonderful folks in December.n
In 2015 they helped a record 1,465 families with their Holiday Drive!
