Riverside Community Care Giving Tree

Once again, the United Parish Community will be partnering with Riverside's In Home Therapy Program to provide Christmas gifts for children and families in need in the Blackstone Valley. The Giving Tree will be on display in the vestry from November 26-December 16. The tree will be decorated with gift tags with a Christmas wish written on them. Please participate in this meaningful and greatly appreciated project by taking a tag from the tree, purchasing the suggested gift and returning it unwrapped and with the tag attached to the church before December 16. Thank you for helping to make a child's Christmas special.

 Blackstone Valley Emergency Shelter

Located at several churches in Whitinsville the Emergency Shelter opens its doors on the harshest of nights from 7pm to 7am in order to provide a warm place to sleep for men, women and children. The decision of whether to open the shelter on any given night is made by our Shelter Coordinators 24 hours in advance. Volunteers are then contacted and the shelter will be publicized on the church answering machine and through the local police and fire departments. For more information, go to
