Community Volunteer Gathering

We'll be meeting on Thurs, March 23 at 7:00 PM at Cedar Valley Community Church. If you can join us, please reply to this email and let me know!
"Since partnering with Love INC the number of families and individuals we are able to serve through our food and essentials pantry has grown exponentially!

Love INC is the first point of contact for our clients. They do intake and screening for us and send clients to us and other churches to meet their needs.

I can trust that when clients come to us, they have been treated with dignity, cared for, and prayed with. I can't thank Love INC enough for the ministry they are doing in our community!

Deb, Nazareth Evangelical Lutheran Church
This month we met a young college student who is struggling to move forward after a tragedy. She and her younger sister, who is still in high school, lost their mom unexpectedly last fall. They are now on their own and desperately trying to pay their bills, maintain their home, and stay in school.

She called Love INC for help with food and we were happy to set up an appointment at the food pantry of one of our partner churches. However, as the conversation continued, and we learned more about their current circumstances, we quickly realized an appointment for food only scratches the surface of their need. We gave her information for several other local agencies and organizations who may also be helpful with legal questions, financial help and tangible goods.

The beautiful thing about Love INC, though, is that we don't just focus on the tangible needs of those we serve. We know this pair of sisters will need ongoing relational and spiritual support as they grieve and grow. They said they would be open to receiving a phone call from a local church and we jumped at the opportunity. As soon as we finished the phone call we asked a partner church near to them to reach out - hoping an invitation will create a lasting relationship.
