The Sparrow’s Nest

The Sparrow’s Nest is a health and hygiene supplement hosted at North Foster Baptist Church that provides items that are not covered by SNAP or food stamps to low income individuals in Foster, RI. Items include razors, bar soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, all-purpose cleaner, laundry soap, dish soap, Kleenex, paper towels, and toilet paper. Specialty items like conditioner, body wash, lotions, and other health and hygiene products are available from time to time depending on the donations we receive.

Everything offered at the Sparrow’s Nest is provided 100% by donations. Without donations and our dedicated volunteers, The Sparrow’s Nest would not be able to function. Every donation counts and makes a huge difference!

The Sparrow’s Nest is held on the first Saturday of every month in the NFBC Family Room from 9:00am to 11:00am (the Family Room can be accessed by parking in the rear of the church and entering the door on the left). Keep an eye out for our monthly article in the Foster Home Journal for updates!

The Sparrow’s Nest opened its doors in 2008. We are happy to say that The Sparrow’s Nest will be celebrating their 10th year of service in October 2018!

If you have any questions about The Sparrow’s Nest, please email our coordinator, Heather Arnold, at If you are interested in donating to the Sparrow’s Nest, please drop off donations at the Department of Human Services in Foster. If you are a Foster resident and think that you could benefit from this supplement, please contact Carol Mauro, DHS Foster. After meeting with her, she will give you a letter and ID number that you must bring to your first Sparrow’s Nest visit if you qualify. We look forward to serving you!
