Our next Community Volunteer Gathering is coming up this Thursday, March 3.

This gathering is an opportunity to train and encourage our community volunteers - folks who make deliveries, home repairs, offer moving assistance, yard work, snow removal and transportation.

Join us on Thursday at 7:00 PM at Immanuel Lutheran Church -
234 S Hackett Road, Waterloo.
We hosted an Open House at our office on February 17. Many people showed interest in volunteering in our Clearinghouse!

There are still positions available. If you would like more information about these opportunities, see
our website.

If you missed our Open House, but would still like to get involved, email us at
Love INC's Partner Churches host Gap Ministries. Each Gap Ministry provides tangible goods to the under-resourced in our community. In the Love INC Clearinghouse we schedule appointments for clients to get what they need at our Gap Ministries.

This month we want to highlight our four food pantries hosted by Countryside Vineyard Church, First Baptist Church in Waterloo, Nazareth Lutheran Church, and St Paul's United Methodist Church.

Of all our Gap Ministries the food pantries are the most utilized. They represent about one third of the total needs we meet. These churches provide a box of groceries as well as basic household and personal hygiene items to each client. They could use specific donations of:

Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Soap, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Toilet Paper, Dish Soap and Laundry Detergent. Contact Love INC at or 319-266-1264 to make a donation.
A single mom of two growing children recently lost her job due to unexpected health issues. She receives food stamps to help with her family's grocery bills, but losing her job meant she was struggling to keep food on the table. She called Love INC for help and we set up an appointment for her to receive food, household essentials and personal hygiene items from one of our partner churches. When we followed up with her to ask about her appointment she was elated! She couldn't believe the amount of items she received in addition to the love, grace, and kindness from those at the church. What a blessing the Church was to this mother in a time of need.
Love INC's annual golf tournament is
