Buy Nothing Day

Buy Nothing Day takes place annually on the Friday after Thanksgiving. On that day, you're invited to give rather than spend by donating  new or gently-used winter gear at donation sites to help out our neighbors in need. 

Clear out your closets for suitable donations of coats, hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, hats, sweaters and sweatshirts. Kids'and Adult XXL+ sizes are particularly in demand. Deposit items by Tuesday, November 26 into the donation boxes found at many PCL locations (currently at Fox Point, Knight Memorial, Mount Pleasant, Olneyville, Rochambeau, South Providence and Washington Park) or at any of the R.I. collection sites listed here.

Garments collected at PCL locations will be redistributed to people in need of warm clothing at events on November 29. Thank you for your generosity!
