However, clues will be gradually revealed here this Fall. In the meantime, read below to learn more about the people and organizations that have joined St. Nick in his very worthy mission…

VICTORY SPORTS GLOBAL OUTREACH INC. is a non-profit corporation with a mission to help under-resourced children, schools, teams and leagues obtain the equipment they need to participate and compete in organized individual and team sports in their communities.
Many kids won’t even tryout for sports activities, because their families can’t afford the necessary equipment. Studies have shown that children who participate in sports have increased school attendance rates, achieve better grades and higher test scores, as well as receive the necessary guidance to make healthier life choices, to stay physically active and the encouragement to keep off the streets. They also learn the power of selflessness, teamwork and discipline that will benefit them the rest of their lives. VSGO collects and warehouses equipment donations to help fill these needs.
With St. Nicholas’ name originating from the Greek, Nike, meaning “victory”, it seems more than fitting that Victory Sports has joined “St. Nick’s Holiday Mission”.
JAMES D. RIELLY FOUNDATION INC. is a non-profit, volunteer corporation, organized exclusively for supporting charitable, religious and fraternal organizations, as well as education. Named in honor of the man whom for generations was Rhode Island’s very own Santa Claus, the James D. Rielly Foundation was established to preserve his legacy and provide help to the children and families of military and first-responders hindered by economic status, physical or mental challenges.
The JDR Foundation believes in giving back to the community both locally and nationally. Year round, the foundation partners with community leaders, businesses, service organizations, churches, and people of goodwill to help find those needs and fill them. The Christmas spirit of giving and helping those in need still burns bright with the descendants and friends of the legendary James D. Rielly, a legacy project devoted to his first love – giving to children.
James passed on the spirit of St. Nick to his grandson, Michael J. Rielly, who continues the same traditions of giving today.
