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 cleaning.
Senator Lanza has joined with Where to Turn 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 Mississippi or Louisiana as part of our adopt a school program.
CD's and DVD's will be sent to injured soldiers in military hospitals.
Clothes will also be sent where needed.
Things that fall into that "other" category will be stored for a major flea market in the Spring.
All proceeds from the flea market will go to cover shipping costs for Where to Turn's various relief programs.
If you would like to participate all you need to do is ship the gift or drop it off at

Where to Turn can also 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 possible.
Hope you will join us as a re-gifter.
