Last Year, More than 135 Volunteers
Gave 14,000 Hours of their Time

Studies show that volunteering alleviates stress, eases depression and leads to better physical health. And we need your help! Last year, over 135 volunteers spent almost 14,000 hours helping with clients, sorting clothes, stocking shelves and working at the front desk. We truly couldn't do any of this without them.

Please contact Nancy Carlson at 860-676-2323 or ncarlson@giftsoflovect.org if you would like to join us.

Our Volunteers
Gifts of Love volunteers are the lifeblood of the agency and perform essential functions on a day to day basis. They serve on the board of directors, stock the food pantry, sort and stock clothes and linens, assist in the holiday room, move furniture, maintain donor records, organize fundraisers and food drives, provide grant writing and public relations support, and help to stuff and distribute the weekend food backpacks. Volunteers also assist in maintaining and harvesting at the 1 acre garden at the Simsbury Community Farm. Whether an adult, in high school, middle school, college, retired or not yet in kindergarten, there is an opportunity for all who would like to participate.

Gifts of Love operates with a lean paid staff supplemented by more than 1200 hours per month from more than 135 volunteers. This significant volunteer commitment, along with the amount of goods donated, speaks volumes about the support this agency has from the community.

VolunTEEN Program
Gifts of Love works with local school, civic groups, companies, youth groups and various clubs to encourage volunteerism.  Students can volunteer at Gifts of Love and Community Farm to meet their community service requirements.  Gifts of Love volunteers truly make a difference in the community while getting valuable experience to include on job resumes and college applications.
