TAP-IN (Touch a Person In Need) says thank you to all the East Bay residents, schools, businesses, churches and organizations that support the Barrington-based agency.

Many thanks from TAP-IN for the wonderful support we received from the residents, schools, businesses, places of worship and organizations of the East Bay Community. 

This year more than 450 families received food and grocery gift cards thanks to your generosity.  More than 20 schools and places of worship supplied us with food for our Thanksgiving packages. During the past year, TAP-IN has provided food for nearly 500 families every month.  The need for TAP-IN services has never been greater and the response from our community has been outstanding.

In the weeks before Thanksgiving, food filled our pantry along with turkey pans, cash contributions, grocery gift cards and homemade pumpkin bread. 

Special thanks to the many students, teachers and parent volunteers who delivered food to TAP-IN and sorted and stocked items for our pantry shelves. Special thanks also to Bristol County Elks #18601 and the Salvation Army for providing TAP-IN with Thanksgiving baskets and gift cards. 

There are so many individuals, groups and businesses to akcknowledge that we could never mention them all.  However, only with their help has TAP-IN been able to make this Thanksgiving a better holiday for the families of the East Bay Community.

We, at TAP-IN, would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who contributed to this year’s Thanksgiving Program. Without the support of the community, TAP-IN would not be able to continue its mission to Touch A Person In Need. 

Stay in touch with us through our website ( tapinri.org).   Many thanks. 

Lynn Moran, TAP-IN president
