Bins of toys
Dan Santos and Father Peter D’Ambrosia, pastor of St. Rita’s Church in Oakland Beach, unload one of several bins of toys delivered to the church last week courtesy of Warwick municipal employees. In addition to the toys, city workers including police and fire donated canned goods and food for the church pantry. The toys were distributed last Sunday during the church’s annual community Christmas party organized by Cheryl Picard. Also donating to the cause were the Gaspee Homeowners Association, Hendricken High School, Oakland Beach School and a local car club.
