Last Sunday morning the Mattapoisett Knights of Columbus and the Mattapoisett Police Association hosted a free pancake breakfast, with Santa.

Officer Nichols Lorenco, President of the Mattapoisett Police Association had this to say – “We partnered with the Knights of Columbus in their already established “Breakfast with Santa” and chose GiftsToGive as the recipient of our collection drive. This year we asked for each family to bring a new or slightly used gift, coat or book to later be delivered to GiftsToGive. We had a great turn out and met our goal in filling a police cruiser.

We would like to thank everyone who attended this event and the gifts they provided.”

Jim Stevens, CEO and Founder of GiftsToGive said“With over 3,000 SouthCoast children homeless and over 30,000 SouthCoast children living in poverty, the need is overwhelming. For the Mattapoisett Police Association and the Mattapoisett Knights of Columbus to “walk the walk” by sponsoring this event and doing the work, for us is a bright and shining light, focused on supporting a more caring community.

We’re proud and privileged to have been chosen as a conduit to pass the collected items on to local children who don’t have very much, and especially during the holidays when under-privileged children become even more aware of their circumstances.”
