What is Gifts from the Heart?

Gifts from the Heart Inc. meets the needs of low income island residents and those going through hardships for FREE through love and kindness.

Gifts From The Heart Inc. was founded by Betty Begg-Brooks, which she originally ran from her home in West Royalty for five years.  Islanders in need are now offered clothing, food, toys, household furniture and personal items at our location at 58 Spring Lane in Charlottetown.

Our food pantry is open Monday – Friday from 10:00am – 4:00pm and for emergencies as needed.  No one in need is turned away.

If you would like to support our work, you can make a donation or sign up to volunteer by contacting us at 902-628-6871.
