GIFT Giving Hub
Essentially it is a place of giving (hence the name)…
- A place that offers the opportunity for hundreds of volunteers to spend thousands of hours each year, packing, sorting and distributing food for over 295 households
- A place where volunteer drivers collect the food parcels and spend their time helping people they don’t even know
- A place where GIFT educators run dynamic sessions about giving, food poverty and how to become a better person by giving to your parents, your siblings, your family and your friends as well as to people you will never likely to meet
- A place where B’nei Mitzvah activities happen - giving those at a special time in their live opportunity to think of others
- A place where the community can go to generously donate thousands of pounds of Mishlaoch Manos at Purim and Chametz before Pesach and everyday items via GIFT Boxes
- A place for international groups to come for education and social action
Manchester - home of the first ever atom to be split, the place where Rolls met Royce, the city where the world’s first ever computer was built, 25 Manchester University students became Nobel prize winners and world famous for its football and its music, you might say that Manchester is special.
We think so too. The volunteers and students who work with the GIFT Manchester office helping and supporting those in the community that need support are simply… amazing.

The GIFT programme has been so beneficial to our pupils. It has reinforced the meaning of ‘giving‘ and ‘generosity‘ which is the founding principle of our faith. It has taught the pupils the value of cooperation and the bond of friendships. We cannot thank the GIFT Manchester team enough for their wonderful work.

It is hard to describe the many benefits my daughter received from the GIFT Camp… I would send her all year long if such a course existed and argue before the Ministry of Education to make it a required course for all children. What a different world we would live in.
