Gifts of Love

Gifts of Love, Inc. in Avon CT helps meet the basic needs of individuals and families in the Greater Hartford area experiencing a short-term financial crisis so that they can return to self sufficiency.


More Details

Founded in 1989, Gifts of Love is devoted to the needs of the community and responds to the needs of individuals and families who have been impacted by a financial crisis through the distribution of food, clothing and household necessities, empowering them towards a path to self-sufficiency. The organization primarily serves people facing a financial crisis due to reduced work hours, illness, divorce, death of a spouse/mate, exiting an abusive relationship, or a significant unexpected increase in expenses.

The Food and Nutrition Program includes food pantries at our Avon and Hartford office locations. The food pantry enables clients to “shop” for food once per month and is stocked with a wide variety of non-perishable foods, paper goods, personal hygiene items, meats and fresh produce.

The Weekend Food Backpack Program distributes backpacks to over 300 students receiving free or reduced cost lunch in need in Greater Hartford with easy-to-prepare meals and drinks for the family for the weekend and snacks for the student for the week.
