The weather may be changing here in New England, but not our spirit for helping others. There are many non-profits that could use a helping hand and they are right outside your front door. Here are just a few charities from a long list to choose from.

If you are looking for an Autumn activity that will bring joy to yourself and others, this an easy and rewarding way to do it!

The American Cancer Society

Volunteer and help the American Cancer Society fulfill their mission to “create a world with more birthdays.” There are many ways to get involved whether it’s through Relay for Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, or through donation.

Over the summer, the Advanced Remarketing Services Inc., Cars for a Cure team participated in Relay for Life in Barrington, RI. We raised over $2,800! Check out our Relay for Life blog to learn more about our experience.

Habitat for Humanity


Habitat for Humanity builds are happening all over the U.S and other countries. If you live here in New England, be sure to check out their website to find out where the nearest build is to you! There are a handful of affiliates right here in Rhode Island.

In October, ARS is volunteering to build in Bristol, RI!
