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. 

During that time we supported families in Revere, Everett, Lynn, East Boston, 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. 

Now Heart to Cart is creating a Thanksgiving Drive to send those families a $100 supermarket gift card so they too can have a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner on November 26th. 

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

11/24/20 Update: Heart to Cart has delivered $8,700 in supermarket gift cards thanks to this Thanksgiving Drive. On Tuesday (11/24) we distributed $3,000 in gift cards to people waiting in line for food at the Chelsea Collaborative. Additional donations will be distributed for Christmas.
