Spirit of Giving is a New Jersey 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation dedicated to helping disadvantaged children and their families, particularly during the holiday season, primarily in Southern New Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia area. The all-volunteer organization was created without a political or specifically religious agenda.
Spirit of Giving provides gifts, food and clothing to disadvantaged children and their families throughout its service area. In addition, we have provided gifts to more than 20 low-income daycares and other charitable organizations, including several local food banks.
Spirit of Giving was founded in 1983 as the Spirit of Christmas. From 1983 to 1996 the organization provided gifts of toys and food to as little as 6 families in the earlier years to approximately 20 families in the later years throughout New Jersey, primarily in Burlington and Camden Counties.
