Gregg’s partners with you, the community, to raise funds and awareness for many worthwhile causes. We believe in giving back to the community that supports us! Through the hard work of our employees and the generosity of our guests we are able to help in many ways.
Every holiday season highlights the need that exists in all of our communities. Gregg’s Giving Tree Program is a perfect example of the extreme generosity of the people of Southeastern New England. Established in 1995, this program brings holiday joy to over 1,500 individuals and families annually.

Hasbro Giving Cake
In August of 1996 Gregg's kicked off a unique community partnership with Hasbro Children's Hospital, an international model for children's health care and family-centered care. The partnership is formed around a luscious, four-layer chocolate peanut butter cake created by Gregg's master bakers specifically to benefit the children's hospital. Gregg's appropriately named the new specialty dessert the "Giving Cake." Each time a whole Giving Cake is purchased, $2 of the purchase price is donated to the children's hospital. Each slice purchased provides a 25-cent donation.
