Greenville’s Gift is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to clothing newborns in need in the Greenville, South Carolina, community. While many babies are born to families who have the means to provide for them in terms of clothing and blankets, other families are unable to provide these necessary items. Greenville’s Gift works to bridge this gap and to meet their needs.
Our objective is to collect gently used and new infant clothing and blankets from the Greenville community and then gift these items to moms in financial need. Greenville’s Gift will rely on community agencies and local hospitals to identify the recipients. Local clinics and hospitals will present the gift bags to moms at the end of their pregnancy or during their stay in the hospital.
Our hope is to make new moms and babies feel celebrated and loved by the Greenville community by presenting beautifully wrapped gift bags filled with newborn essentials.
Over 6,000 babies are born in the Greenville community each year, and 40% of them are born in need.
It is our mission to help these babies.
We divide donations into individual gift bags based on gender and season. The bags bear the Greenville’s Gift logo. We hope to provide clothing essentials for each newborn for their first year of life.
It’s simple! Gather gently used (clean, no visible stains) or new:
• Clothing (size 0-12 months)
• Baby blankets
• Socks and Hats
• Bibs and Burp Cloths
Then you can either drop them off, arrange for us to pick them up, or mail them to us. Please include your name and e-mail address so that we can thank you and let you know we received your donation. Afterwards, we will get your donations wrapped and into the hands of a new mom as soon as possible! If you would like a receipt for tax purposes, please contact us.
Monetary donations are also welcome! Please make checks payable to Greenville’s Gift. 80% of dollars donated to Greenville’s Gift will be used for the purchase of clothing and materials for Greenville’s Gift. There are no salaries and very limited overhead expenses associated with Greenville’s Gift. We will send a BIG thank you and a tax receipt (please include contact information.).
In addition, there are many volunteer opportunities. Spread the word – tell your friends, your church, your school! You can also help by organizing or hosting a clothing drive and by sorting and bundling baby clothes. We’d love to involve families, churches, schools and businesses. Please contact us for more info.
We would like to recognize and say thanks to our wonderful partners! Greenville’s Gift is so appreciative of these amazing businesses for their support without which we would not be able to provide for Greenville’s newborns in need. Many thanks!
