|Throughout the year we will all be receiving that certain gift that we
either will never use or already have.
If we don't spend hours on that return line this gift will sit in a
closet or a drawer until it is finally thrown out when we do our Spring
Where to Turn would like to give you another option.
Donate your unwanted gift and we will make sure it gets to someone who
could use it.
Toys will be given to local hospitals or shipped to needy children in
disaster areas as part of our adopt a school program.
Clothes will also be sent where needed.
CD's and DVD's will be sent to soldiers in military hospitals
Last year we distributed nearly 2,500 items
For things that fall into that "other" category we will store them for a
major flea market to be held on 8/23.
All proceeds from the flea market will go to cover shipping costs for
our various relief programs.
If you would like to participate all you need to do is ship the gift or
drop it off at

We are also looking for additional drop off points.
We are going to approach the Jets, Giants, Rangers, Islanders, Devils, Knicks and Nets to see if they will ask their fans to bring gifts to their home games after the holidays.
We are hoping local high schools and colleges will do the same at one of their games during the year.
If you would like to be an official drop off point please contact us at
We will work with any school, business or community/civic group
We will arrange to pick up donated gifts at your convenience.
We think that this will be a great way to help out the less fortunate
and would like to get as many schools and organizations involved as
Hope you will join us as a re-gifter.
