Our Programs


Capital City Community Center's Thanksgiving Food Drive

Every year, Cap City, an affiliate of Gateway Healthcare and Lifespan, prepares and distributes approximatley 200 Thanksgiving Baskets to families in need in the Smith Hill, Mt. Pleasant, Wanskuck, and Elmhurst areas of Providence.  You can help by donating a $10 gift card from Shaws, Stop & Shop, Aldi's or Price Rite grocery stores.  We give these gift cards with the baskets to help families purchase a turkey for their meal.  Donations (gift card or checks made out to Capital City Community Center) can be sent to the attention of Susan Stevenson, Cap City Executive Director, through any of the following methods:

* Mail to 1471 Elmwood Avenue, Cranston, RI 02910
