Rose’s Care and Share: Hundreds of Coats, Hats, Toys Donated to Children in Need

Rose’s Care and Share, a charitable organization that assists children and families in need, is named in honor of Riverhead Building Supply coworker Rosemary Densieski. Rose died in a tragic auto accident in 2001. Through the efforts of her family, friends, and coworkers, Rose’s Care & Share was created to continue her spirit of giving and helping the community.

Contributions to Rose’s Care & Share during the year help to fund holiday gifts for children in Long Island communities.  Each year, Riverhead Building Supply employees shop for and wrap items for each child based upon a wish list sent in by the child or family. Some of our talented employee crafters knit or crochet warm winter hats and scarves to include. Wrapped gifts are put into sacks for each child, loaded onto a Riverhead Building Supply truck and delivered by Santa. In the last two years alone, over 120 children, between the ages of 1 – 18, have received the goodwill of this charity.

At other times during the year, Rose’s Care & Share steps in to assist children who have lost a parent, or have been displaced by flood, fire or other loss of their primary dwelling. Take a look at some of the photos below, or our videos from prior years.

Santa’s Riverhead Building Supply sleigh is scheduled to deliver to schools and communities this week!
