DUFFLE BAG BASH

Sunday, August 8, 2021

We’re bringing the community together for the 6th Annual Duffle Bag Bash to help children in foster care.

Admission to this not to be missed event featuring food, drinks, music, and family fun is a new suitcase, bag or backpack, or gift card that will directly benefit a child or teen living in foster or residential care.

Our friends from Cardi’s Furniture and Mattresses along with Duffle Bag Bash hosts Lise Iwon, Adoption Rhode Island, and RI’s Office of the Child Advocate will be there to collect and deliver your donations so that no child has to move using a trash bag for their belongings.

Gift cards and donations will give these young people the childhood experiences and celebrations of milestones in their lives that every child deserves but are often missed by youth in foster care.

Enjoy food and drinks, family and children’s activities and more!
Live music from Hasbro’s band Toys2Men and our DJ Chris Medeiros.

DONOR CONVERSATIONS

Ongoing

Are you interested in joining CEO Darlene Allen to learn more about the important work you support? Throughout the year we invite small groups of friends old and new to join in an informal conversation and discussion. Often with a speaker from our ARI team or a youth or family to share their story and their voice. If you would like to be part of a future Donor Conversation please email Jennifer Foster.
