Heart to Cart was created by Stride for Stride in April 2020 to buy supermarket gift cards for those struggling to buy food during the pandemic. In 2020 Heart to Cart delivered $30,000 in supermarket gift cards to people and communities hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In 2021 we're setting a goal of distributing $150,000 in supermarket gift cards and we're asking you to help us distribute those cards to people and communities you want to help. 

In 2020 our supermarket cards were delivered to people in Chelsea, Revere, Lynn and East Boston - Greater Boston communities hit extremely hard by COVID-19. However, we know that there are thousands of other communities and millions of other people who need help buying food - this is why we're asking you to help us make an even greater impact in 2021. How?

  1. Click I Want to Fundraise for This
  2. Create a fundraising page or a team page (for your company, friends & family)
  3. Reach our suggested goal of $1000 (you can change this)*
  4. We'll send you the $100 supermarket gift cards and Heart to Cart note cards** 
  5. Distribute or mail $100 supermarket gift cards to those in need

Give the supermarket gift cards to a local family struggling during the pandemic, a friend who is out of work, a local community center working with the poor, or anyone who could use some help. Your act of kindness will not only change their life, but it will also change yours.  

If you want to donate without creating a page then that is okay too - you can do that right here on this page. I (Tom) will use those donations to distribute supermarket gift cards to the Greater Boston communities and families that are struggling to survive. 


Thank you for support,
