Thanks for visiting! 

Shane Gives Thanks Inc, is a 501(c)3 Registered Non profit organization. 

The Mission of Shane Gives Thanks Inc is to provide those in our community in need a healthy and nutritious meal through our programs. 

Shane Gives Thanks Inc was started in 2014 by then 7 Year old Shane. Seeing a commercial on the television about starving children all over the world, Shane was saddened to learn that hunger happened in his own community. There the Shane Gives Thanks Inc mission was started! 
Working solely on donations, Shane went to his family and friends, and  the community asking for a simple donation, and he was able to successfully fill 209 Thanksgiving baskets year to date.
But Thanksgiving didn't stop Shane, He also had helped many charities during the Christmas Season. Adopting a full homeless shelter, and many of his peers from school. 

In the summer of 2016, Shane questioned again... What do the kids at school do for lunch once school is out for a weekend? Does everyone have lunch? It is astounding to know the number of children that did not. Feeling that he could help more than just at the holidays , the Peyton Pack Program is rolling into our local schools the fall of 2016-2017. The Peyton Pack Program (Named after his sister) would provide local school children Grade K-5 a pack full of nutritious food for the weekend. Each "Peyton Pack" would contain, 2 breakfast choices, 2 lunch choices, snack, vegetable, fruit and juice. Enough to sustain a child for the weekend until school on Monday. Each pack costs $7 per student per weekend! At no cost to the school or to the families  receiving the pack. 

In the Winter of  2016, Shane Gives Thanks Inc now operates the local food pantry for the Town of Carver. Reaching out to more than just Carver in February 2017 Shane Gives Thanks Inc opened their doors to the residents of Plympton Massachusetts
