Gifts From The Heart was founded in 2018 by Tammy Braithwaite. While visiting her mother in a memory care residential facility, Tammy noticed other residents who seemed to be in need of everyday items that most of us take for granted. She also noticed residents who had few, if any, visitors to come and bring them things.  Tammy couldn’t let this be, so she went to several area business owners and asked if they’d be interested in donating items for those seniors in need. The response was overwhelming. Donations of items such as toiletries, books, blankets, snacks, and puzzles began pouring in. Tammy donated these items to grateful assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout the Myrtle Beach area. The donations gained momentum as more and more businesses and individuals began donating items to Tammy to distribute. And so Gifts From The Heart, LLC was born.

Today residential care facilities in Myrtle Beach and surrounding communities regularly receive donations of everyday comforting items through Gifts From The Heart.  She hopes Gifts From The Heart will bring awareness to this cause, and will help all seniors throughout the area to have a more enjoyable and comfortable lifestyle.

Gifts From The Heart is a proud member of the Chamber of Commerce. Gifts From The Heart is also a 501(3c) organization.
