UMass Dartmouth's Leduc Center for Civic Engagement and SouthCoast Serves joined together to celebrate MLK Day at Gifts to Give in New Bedford, MA. Volunteers cleaned items to be donated to the needy. GiftsToGive™ is a magical place. Thousands of local children come here to engage in giving and service.
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 100% volunteer management team.
