The Scallop Project

The gift of fresh New Bedford scallops not only makes for a delicious meal, but also helps children struggling with mental health and angst of adolescent life.  Thanks to our generous partner, Eastern Fisheries, whenever you order a gift of scallops through our Scallop Project, a portion of the purchase price is donated to helping these children live a better life.

Eastern FisheriesThe scallops you receive come directly from Eastern Fisheries in New Bedford, where they are processed, packaged and shipped.  Eastern uses its own scallops and processing plant to ensure the best quality seafood. These scallops are hand-culled for adequate size and freshness. We guarantee the freshest and most flavorful scallops available.

Place an order today for yourself or someone special. Enjoy the freshest scallops and feel good about giving back at the same time.

Attired 2B Hired Project

The Attired 2B Hired Project was launched 3 years ago by the Women’s Fund in collaboration with Child & Family Services to fill a need of providing appropriate clothing and grooming services to women who were finishing training programs and interviewing to go to work.

Gently used work clothing (suits, slacks, blouses, blazers and hospital scrubs) are donated by women in our area and distributed to women who come to Hetty’s Thrift Shoppe with a referral form from their sponsoring agency.

To date, the program has served hundreds of local women attending work skills program. Donate your gently used work clothing to Hetty’s and help someone enter the workforce today!
