Event description

Description

Join us at the historic Arcade Providence in the heart of downtown for an evening of charitable giving to benefit Amenity Aid. Funds raised through this event directly support Amenity Aid's mission to provide essential hygiene products to those in need throughout Rhode Island. This benefit will feature speakers, cash bar, decedent desserts and of course a spectacular selection of silent auction items!

Our speakers include Meaghan Mooney, NBC 10’s Traffic Anchor and Lifestyle Reporter and long-time Amenity Aid advocate and Liz Duggan, the founder and driving force behind the charity.

Your participation and support of this event helps thousands of struggling individuals and families in our state gain access to the most basic hygiene products necessary for good health and wellness. Thanks to this annual event that serves as our main source of funding, our neighbors will not have to choose between purchasing food or essential toiletries, utilize harmful coping strategies like washing without soap or experience emotional distress that occurs when their basic hygiene needs cannot be met.

About Amenity Aid
At Amenity Aid we’ve served Rhode Island’s most vulnerable populations since 2013 by supplying over 125,000 basic hygiene products such as soap, shampoo, and deodorant to local shelters. Organizations we serve never pay for products we donate. Amenity Aid is proud to operate with minimal expenses thanks to our staff that works without compensation and donated office space.

We support ten organizations throughout Rhode Island:

Crossroads Rhode Island
Operation Stand Down Rhode Island
House of Hope CDC
Welcome House of South County
Sojourner House
Amos House
WARM Center
Lucy's Hearth
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center
North Kingstown Food Pantry

Liz Duggan founded Amenity Aid in 2013 after seeing firsthand the great need for toiletries in shelters. As a frequent business traveler, Liz would donate her unused hotel amenities to homeless shelters. She was always met with overwhelming gratitude for donating personal care products that were often scarce. Overwhelmed by the notion that others were without basic hygiene products that so many of us take for granted, Liz became motivated to find a solution to ensure that shelters always have hygiene products to distribute to homeless people, at risk individuals, and victims of violence.
