I have only been involved with Angel In Action RI for a few months. I have enjoyed working with such a compassionate caring person as Debra. The work that I have seen her do for the community over the past months is unbelievable. With the help of such a wonderful group of volunteers she has been able to reach her goal of Thanksgiving baskets for the Hardworking in need. With Christmas just around the corner she has reached out to her volunteers to adopt a child and make their Christmas wishes come true. Within a little over a week, 81 children have been adopted. As volunteer I am truly blessed to work with such a great group of people. I am hoping I can give back just a little something to the community.

I've been volunteering and donating to Deb for a while now and she's very accommodating and creative with her fundraising. She is extremely compassionate and makes great use of the donations.. Also, her place is really nice and is set up great

My family was in a true bind this Thanksgiving. I was out of work due to a reoccurance of breast cancer (3rd time) and had just had a double radical mastectomy. I had NO income coming in at all, just enough for the bills. Angel in Action came through for my family and I with a COMPLETE turkey dinner. Without the organization my family and I would have had our own Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

Angel in Action also helped a few families near and dear to me not only this season but last season as well!

It is great to finally have someone who is willing (and sees the need) to help the WORKING CLASS PEOPLE.

I have followed this organization from its conception. I am amazed at all that is done for the community and individuals in need. With Deb at the helm, and her angels along side, they have accomplished more than most organizations in a such short time in existance. Deb has such a caring and genuine heart for everyone she serves. Lives have been changed by the acts of kindness towards many people in the community. Hats off to Angels in Action RI !!

It’s always a great thing to help others but it’s just as important to help responseably. Angel in Action is just that helping people who need it most-people who just need a nudge over a hurdle -not making a career off of other people’s generosity! I can’t give much money but I can give something just as important-time, skills, and a helping hand!

Hi .. Just wanted to take a moment to say How wonderful and Caring Deb and her Angels are. My husband and I have fallen on hard times. Our Clothes dryer had bit the dust. With, my Husband out of work due to him having Stage 4 colorectal cancer and having on going chemotherapy treatments, and his TDI benefits exhausted. We didn't have the funds to purchase another one. I was going back in forth to the laundromat for a little while but, that gets costly . Deb reached out to her Organization of Angels and She was able to find US a Clothes Dryer. Also, this past Thanksgiving We were blessed with a Beautiful Holiday Basket Filled With A Turkey , all the Fixings, and pie for Dessert too. I was able to meet Deb in person She truly is a really sweet Person. My husband and I are Blessed To have Deb And her Angels in our lives .They have made such a positive impact on our lives. The community and this world need more People like Deb and Her Angels. They make this world a brighter place to live in. Thank you Deb and Angels in Action!!! Peace~Happiness to you all

I met Deb a few months ago when I was trying to donate through Facebook a pair of new steel toe boots. I wasn't looking to swap I wasn't looking to give it to a family who just was too lazy to go out and buy a new pair; or didn't feel like spending the extra money. I wanted to give it to someone who really could use it. Deb immediately contacted me and asked if I was willing to donate to angel in action. After speaking with Deb and realizing what she does, my family and I immediately knew we had to get involved. It's like Deb has a mission in life to help people in need. Despite her full-time job and personal life every time I text her or Facebook her to ask her a question she always answers me back immediately. She wears a ton of hats and is so organized about it. She really is a remarkable woman who has done an amazing job! My family and I are so happy that we are able to help Deb and all the other amazing angels on her team.

When my elderly uncle was discharged from the hospital, he was weak and alone, and not eating well. Living out-of-state, I was unable to help him at the time, and it was so frustrating. We were trying to arrange Meals on Wheels for him, but it wasn't happening. Deb personally visited with him numerous times, brought him food, and made arrangements for food for him until he was feeling stronger. (I think my sweet uncle fell in love!) Her kindness to my uncle was overwhelming. I am thankful for all that Deb does to help the people in her community. Angel in Action is an outstanding organization.

Angel in Action went above and beyond for my family. The very day my home burned down Debra reached out to my family personally. The firemen told me Red Cross would help us within 24 hours but they used the snow as an excuse to not contact me for almost 5 days. The snow was not a concern for Deb though because within hours she was personally reaching out to the community. She was all over social media and collecting donations all over Rhode Island. Her vast network of kind hearted and generous souls are the main reason my family was able to have clothes, toys, and food. Deb has truly helped us get back on our feet without her I’d be a scrambling mess. She also is the only one that has directed me to a community center that could help my husband and I get into a home faster for my kids. Deb and all those a part of Angel in Action, you have been a literal God send and my family and I can’t thank you enough.

Angel in Action saved us. Literally. We had a house fire and lost almost everything. My daughter at the time was 2 months old and my son was 6 years. She brought us so much to help us through our hard times and checked in on us so much it was incredible. She saved us. She made it easier to deal with. Even helped with a childcare place to take my daughter while I had to enter my old house and take out the last surviving items. Angel in action for sure

Deb and all of her angels are absolutely amazing! I was lucky enough to meet her a couple of years ago after hearing About all of my dad's "angels" he had. After what she has done in helping everyone around her as well as myself I have learned how amazing she is. Absolutely love that she trys to help families who actually work and don't get help they may need because they do not qualify for it. You have a heart of gold as well as your angels ❤️❤️❤️
