As the holidays quickly approach, many people are considering how they can give back to others.

Comprehensive Community Action Program (CCAP) is kicking off their annual holiday food drive and “Adopt a Family” program.

Three years ago, Caroline, Elizabeth and Alexandra Cowart began the “Go Orange” campaign in Cranston as a small fundraiser and food drive in their respective schools after seeing an appeal from the No Kid Hungry organization on a television commercial.

Each year since, the drive has grown in participation as more and more schools and organizations across the city and in neighboring communities join in the movement to raise awareness, funding, and food for Cranston families.

Lee Beliveau, VP of Development and Corporate Affairs, and Caroline, Elizabeth and Alexandria Cowart, joined the Rhode Show on Thursday to discuss how you can get involved and “Lend a Helping Hand”.
