Gifts of Love Celebrates 25 Years - Help Us Make a Difference
Located in Avon, Connecticut, Gifts of Love is committed to providing basic need services to individuals and families primarily throughout Greater Hartford who are experiencing a financial crisis. Born out of a small group of individuals and families who began delivering food to their at-need neighbors 25 years ago, Gifts of Love has grown into a thriving agency that fundamentally believes by families helping families and neighbors helping neighbors, we can change lives and promote kindness in our communities.
In 2013, Gifts of Love and the Community Farm of Simsbury merged. The two organizations had been working closely together for several years to grow and harvest organic produce for local food pantries. This merge will strengthen both organizations and enable us to fulfill our vision.
In order to fulfill its mission, Gifts of Love works closely with individuals, civic groups, corporations, foundations and schools. We are always seeking to establish new connections and partnerships. We invite you to support Gifts of Love and experience the true impact of families helping families by:
