Heart to Cart was created in April 2020 to purchase supermarket gift cards for those who needed them the most during the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

From April to July 2020, Heart to Cart purchased $13,000 in supermarket gift cards for 130 families struggling during this pandemic. 

In November & early December we delivered $11,300 in supermarket gift cards to 113 families in need. $3,000 of those cards were distributed to people waiting in line for food at the Chelsea Collaborative.

Now Heart to Cart is preparing for the Christmas holiday with our Holiday Drive to send families in need a $100 supermarket gift card before Christmas. 

Can you give us a push with a donation today? Every $5 or $10 makes a huge difference. 

In 2020 we supported families in Revere, Everett, Lynn, East Boston, Mattapan, and Chelsea, and worked with The Chelsea Collaborative and the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center to support immigrant families who have been hit extremely hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Please watch the CBS-Boston (WBZ) video about Heart to Card and Bridget and my video before distributing cards on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. 

Thank you for your support,
