Gifts To Give .... Because We All Have Gifts to Give

A Tangible Mission
GiftsToGive™ is a magical place. Thousands of local children come here to engage in giving and service. We call it Tangible Philanthropy and Big Citizenship.
Kids donate their “gently-used” clothes, toys, books and things they no longer need or use and volunteer at our huge re-purposing center to process, organize and package tons of donations, transforming them into thousands of individual gift packages.
Hundreds of local agencies and care givers go on-line and order customized gift-packages for homeless and at-risk children in their care. All this is made possible through the skill sets and commitment of our volunteer management team.
Our NGO business model is low cost, high impact and we’re working to be self-sustaining. In essence, we’re building a more caring community by repositioning philanthropy and redefining citizenship.
