Gifts from the Heart Seeks Volunteers

Gifts From The Heart mandate is serving low-income island residents and those undergoing temporary hardships, for free through love and kindness. Whether it’s families facing challenging times, seniors in nursing homes, children in shelters, or those facing addiction problems and those living on the streets, we seek your support and contribution to make a significant difference.

With rising food costs we do our best to make every dollar count. Currently, GFTH is serving over 2,000 families across PEI and we provide food, furniture, household items, personal items, and all their basic needs. The recent wave of new immigrants has put more pressure on our services as every day more and more families coming to Canada are requiring our services. Immigrants arriving with limited resources require assistance with basic needs.

As a nonprofit organization, we rely heavily on the support of generous donors to continue our mission and expand our reach. With the support of our communities and the people of Prince Edward Island and others, we will be able to source healthier food options and be able to serve more families and communities throughout PEI. Funds will be used to purchase essential supplies, and overhead operating costs, support ongoing operations, and provide much-needed support to low-income residents. Your donations and contributions will directly benefit families and individuals across Prince Edward Island and help to keep our doors open.

 

We also seek volunteers for helping man our community fridges in Stratford and West Royalty. Volunteers can register at our head office located a 10 Maple Hills Avenue, Charlottetown. For more information or for details on how to support GFTH, please email bettybegg@gmail.com or visit our website at www.giftsfromtheheart.inc.com or call at 902-393-0171.
