LOVE INC OF THE CEDAR VALLEY
OCTOBER 2015

Happy Halloween! At Love INC we're wrapping up our Fall 2015 Transformation Ministry semester and heading full-speed into the holidays.

This semester in Transformation Ministry we had a wonderful opportunity to develop deeper relationships with our clients and provide skills to help them gain greater stability.

It's the beginning of the holiday season and we're excited about how our partner churches are blessing our community in these upcoming months. See the information below to find out how you can participate.
 
During the month of November, we will be signing up our Love INC clients to receive Thanksgiving meals from two of our partner churches.

Cedar Valley Community Church will provide 45 meals that will be picked up at their church during appointment times.

Prairie Lakes Church Waterloo will deliver 75 meals to our clients' homes. Our clients will be able to choose from two different menus: a traditional meal and a more southern-inspired meal.

If you would like to donate toward these meals, you can contact each church directly.
We're promoting three different Christmas Stores hosted by our partner churches this December.

Christian Community Developers have found that the opportunity for families and parents to purchase their own gifts at an affordable rate helps provide dignity at Christmastime.

At these Christmas stores, participants will use their own money to purchase gifts at 80-90% off their retail price.

If you or members of your church would like to donate gifts or would like to volunteer at any of these stores, you can find more information on our website.
 
1. ADMINISTRATIVE VOLUNTEER: We are looking for an administrative volunteer who would be willing to spend 8-10 hours per week at Love INC to help us schedule appointments and close files. Ideally this person would be available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00-12:00. If you're interested, email clearinghouse@loveinccv.org.

2. INTAKE VOLUNTEER: We have a volunteer position at Love INC where you can spend time on the phone listening, relating to and providing hope to those in need. We have openings for intake volunteers on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays and can be flexible with our schedule. Email clearinghouse@loveincc.org for more information.
We got a call from a young man who had a full-time job opportunity waiting for him - the only thing standing in the way were the right work boots. In fact, he had the boots and was only missing the metatarsal guards that would provide the right protection required by the job.

We spent time connecting with this client on the phone. We verified his job opportunity with his supervisor and later in the day we purchased a gift card to a local shop that could provide exactly what he needed.

We always take the opportunity to discuss future dreams, things we're grateful for and prayer requests with each caller. When we got to this part of the conversation, this young man expressed how grateful he was for the support from Love INC and our partner churches. He seemed genuinely surprised and grateful to receive such personal care and generosity from the churches in our community.
