Gifts of Love Charity Profile
Gifts of Love provides basic needs - food, clothing, furniture, household items, energy assistance - to people in the Greater Hartford area, but in order to qualify for our program they need to be working. When times are toughest, the working poor who don't qualify for many government programs are often hit the hardest. The families that are served by GoL's programs face a short-term crisis in their lives due to reduced working hours, illness, divorce, death of a spouse/mate, domestic abuse, or a significant unexpected increase in expenses. To help meet the basic needs of individuals and families experiencing temporary financial crisis so that they can achieve or maintain self-sufficiency. Our clients are hard working people who simply can't make ends meet.
Gifts of Love Volunteer Information
Studies show that volunteering alleviates stress, eases depression and leads to better physical health. And we need your help! Last year, over 75 volunteers spent over 6,000 hours helping with clients, sorting clothes, stocking shelves and working at the front desk. We truly couldn't do any of this without them.
