The Giving Factory

A volunteer shift in The Giving Factory Warehouse involves hands-on processing of the donated goods that flow in on a regular basis. Each station in our warehouse includes inspecting, sorting, and packaging donations to ultimately be distributed to the children we serve.

How you helpWe work with over 40,000 families, individuals, community groups and companies to serve over 140,000 children every year in Massachusetts. Your time is vital to getting children the everyday essentials they need.
About usChildhood poverty is a serious nationwide issue. The kids we help don’t have shoes that fit. Or a coat warm enough to fend off winter winds. Or a backpack to carry their schoolbooks and supplies. Without these basics, they suffer. They don’t want to go to school. They have a hard time learning in school. They don’t go outside to play. They don’t feel valued. We provide kids with the essentials they need, free of charge so that they can succeed.
