In 2005, Hasbro, Inc. and The Providence Journal Company joined forces and began to co-sponsor the Children's Holiday Hope Fund designed to support children and their families in Rhode Island. The Children's Holiday Hope Fund combines two well-known programs:

  • RI Children’s Giving Tree (Hasbro, Inc.)
  • The Santa Fund (The Providence Journal)

Hasbro, Inc. donates a toy for each of the children ages 1-12 involved
with the Rhode Island Department of Human Services, while The Providence Journal provides hats and mittens to these children through the generosity of community donations. The toys and hat/mitten sets will be distributed by the Rhode Island Community Action Association (RICAA).
