With support from the North End Community Action Committee, Councilman Narducci hosts numerous events each year to serve Providence families in need. Together, they have delivered over 700 Christmas toy and clothing packages, 850 Thanksgiving food baskets, and 1,300 Easter baskets to Providence families.
