AIDS Care Ocean State will take care of your unwanted Christmas gifts for you:

OK did not like a gift you might have gotten for Christmas”¦ I have a solution.

The AIDS Care Ocean State Donation Center at 603 Elmwood Avenue in Providence will be open from 8am to 12 noon Saturday December 27th to take any donations you may have!

We are in need of used warm winter clothing, coats, gloves, hats you name it we take it. Small household items as well.

So take a few minutes after getting your new clothes for Christmas and donate some of your old items to AIDS Care Ocean State.

If you can’t make it on Saturday call Keith at 781-5565 to arrange a pickup or for drop off hours.

Thank you and Happy Holidays to all.

I got some new kitchen stuff for Christmas last year and dropped off my old stuff and some clothes at the ACOS Donation Center. The staff was friendly and super appreciative, they even had people come out to the car to help me unload my stuff and they estimate the value and give you a receipt for your taxes.
