Traveling Gift Basket Debut!

The New Bedford Travel Guide is so grateful for the generous donations from our South Coast businesses whose contributions helped make our mission possible.  Thanks to Marion Animal Hospital, we now have a pet basket to raffle off as well.   The Traveling Gift Basket is packed with goodies which add up to $600 in products and services!

We are excited to announce that the Traveling Gift Basket will debut in downtown New Bedford, at Civic Support, a nonprofit providing services to help promote other nonprofits and community initiatives in New Bedford and the South Coast. The basket will travel to other local businesses and nonprofit locations where you can purchase raffle tickets for $5 per ticket.  We will keep you posted on the basket’s location so you can follow along on its journey.

As promised, we will be donating all proceeds from the basket to Saint Anthony’s food pantry after a recent break-in resulting in $500 worth of stolen food.  The winner of the baskets will also be presented with the Pay It Forward Challenge: Keep the basket, add to it, raffle it off, and donate the money to your favorite charity or community initiative.  Let’s work together to give back and make the Traveling Gift Basket a positive South Coast tradition!

Stop by on Thursday, December 12 from 5-8pm, during AHA! Night, and purchase your raffle tickets for the Traveling Gift Basket at the Civic Support Holiday Party, on 36 N Water Street, downtown New Bedford.  Civic Support would like to invite other nonprofits and community professionals to join the party for good conversation, networking, and holiday cheer!

Share in the joy of the holiday spirit and support your local community and those who work hard to help others.   We sure hope to see you there!

As a young girl I kept a daily journal of my summers on the South Coast and Cape Cod. I love to write about my travels, photograph, and meet tourists and locals who are making a difference in our community. My mission is to keep you updated on all the South Coast has to offer and I welcome you to come along with me on this journey!
