Newport Coffee Cup Project Fundraiser

Do you know a senior on Aquidneck Island who needs a ride to the grocery store or a doctor appointment or just wants to get out for a cup of coffee? The Newport Coffee Cup Project, started by Karen Recore, may be a solution. She will give seniors a free ride to do just that on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 7 a.m. - 3 p.m. or as needed by appointment.

To support this venture, a series of comedy fundraisers is planned at the Firehouse Theater; Dec. 8 at 7 p.m., Dec. 11 at 4 p.m., and a family show matinee for all ages on Dec. 18 at 2 p.m. where kids can have their picture taken with Santa. Comedians taking the stage will be Doreen Collins, who performed with the Charlie Hall’s Ocean State Follies and Brian Tiernan, also a ventriloquist and musician. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased at firehousetheater.org or at the door.

For information on how to arrange a ride, send an email to Recore at newportcoffeecupproject@gmail.com.
