Giving Back

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill

At Avon Prime Meats we believe in the development of strong community ties through support of many local causes.

Avon Prime Meats supports schools, sports teams and charities in the surrounding towns of Avon, Simsbury, Canton, Farmington, West Hartford, Granby and New Hartford. One of our main beneficiaries is Gifts of Love, a charity located in Avon that supports families that need a fresh start in life.

We also like to invest in the education of future generations by supporting Avon Education Foundation and also Dollars for Scholars. Every year, we donate $1,000 to this wonderful cause that provides scholarships for deserving seniors in Avon High School.

Every year we also host our Dog Days of Winter fundraiser. This year we raised $1,400 to benefit Dog Star, a newly formed local dog rescue organization. Through our week of gathering donations, we also raised awareness of their cause and several dogs were adopted as our guests were touched by the event.
