Rhode Island Kids Need Our Help
Of the states in New England, Rhode Island has the highest rate of child poverty, according to a new report by Rhode Island KIDS COUNT, a leading child advocacy group.
“Children in poverty, especially those in poverty for extended periods of time, are more likely to have physical and behavioral health problems, live in food-insecure households, experience difficulty in school, become teen parents, earn less as adults, be unemployed more frequently, and fall below the poverty line at least once later in their lives.”
One in five Rhode Island children live in poverty
A quarter of high school students were absent for at least 10% of the school year last year
Half of the children living in homeless shelters are school aged

Organize a Clothing Drive
Clothing drives are some of the best, and most fun, ways to collect clothing for CKTRI. New underwear & socks are always the greatest need.
