Gifts to Give is a magical place. Thousands of South Coast children actively engage in giving and service. We call it Tangible Philanthropy and Big Citizenship. Kids donate their “gently used” clothes, bootks, toys and all the good things they no longer need or use and volunteer to work at our huge factory in Acushnet to process, organize and package tons of donations. We then transform these donations into thousands of individual gift packages that are ordered by hundreds of local agencies for the children in their care. 100% volunteer staffed, no payroll! Adult volunteers always needed. We all have gifts to give: 1 Titleist Drive, Acushnet, 5089-717-8715; www.giftstogive.org; 501c3 nonprofit.
