At Joe’s Butcher Shop and Fish Market, we support a wide variety of charitable organizations throughout central Indiana. Our donations usually take the form of gift certificates for silent auctions or donations of goods. We have a set budget for donations that are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
We prefer to give to organizations that make an impact within Hamilton County. We give preference to organizations that deal with feeding the poor or aged, religious organizations that are supporting charitable projects, public schools and education foundations, public service organizations, police and fire departments, veterans groups, organizations that aid sick or chronically ill children, humane societies and organizations that deal with the humane treatment of farm animals.
Joe’s allows local clubs and organizations to use the front of Joe’s for BBQ or grilling fundraising events with the stipulation that all meats and sauces are purchased through Joe’s.
Examples of a few of our previous gift recipients include:
- The Mathew 25 Center and Food Pantry
- The Little Sisters of the Poor
- St. Augustine Home for the Aged
- Second Helpings
