Ipswich Caring

In early December, volunteers visit hundreds of Ipswich senior citizens over the age of 80 and give each of them a Christmas cake, and distribute Christmas presents for approximately 100 Ipswich families.

Ipswich Caring

Forty years ago an Ipswich mom realized that some of her daughters’ classmates did not have warm winter coats. A group of friends banded together and simply took care of it—and the mission to help families in need was born. Ipswich Caring, a 501(c)3 organization relies on the generosity of local residents, businesses and community organizations to help more than 100 families, almost 200 children ages birth to 18, and 700 senior citizens in town each year.

The organization is governed by an 8-member Board of Directors, and has no paid staff or administrative fees and directs 100% of the donations we receive to children and families. Approximately 200 volunteers from all walks of life supporting our efforts each year. Coordinators oversee a variety of tasks such as collecting and distributing toys, clothing, food, book tree, publicity, Giving Trees, donation tracking, Birthday Program, Back to School Program, Senior Citizen Program and holiday sorting and delivery.
