LOVE INC OF THE CEDAR VALLEY

July 2015


What a beautiful and busy time of year at Love INC! 

We just hosted our 4th Annual Golf Tournament with great success! Also, this week several households will be hosting RAGBRAI riders to benefit our organization.

It's a great time of year for student groups to serve our community. A couple of groups have chosen to serve through Love INC and are being deployed to do yardwork and deliver beds to households who need them.

It's fun to see how our churches can come together, taking advantage of the beautiful weather, and serve our neighbors. See what else is going on ...
 

Church Ministry Coordinators, mark your calendars for our upcoming CMC Gathering!

We'll be meeting on Thursday, August 20 at 2 p.m. at Westminster Presbyterian Church. Ice cream will be served! Enter the church through the back entrance, center doors.

This will be a great opportunity to discuss how we can better partner with you as we head into the fall.

Reply to this email and let us know if you can attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
 


On July 9th we hosted our 4th Annual Golf Tournament. We had our best fundraiser to date bringing in $17,000!

Golfers from many of our partner churches and local businesses came together for a great day of golf. Irv Warren Golf Club hosted us well and the weather couldn't have been better.

Thank you to all who came out to make this event a huge success! We are already looking forward to next year!

We got a call from a grandfather who had just recently moved into our area. He was asking for help in getting some baby supplies. Why?

His daughter was going to prison and he moved here to take on the responsibility for his grandchildren - ages 1 & 4 - while she was away.

Love INC jumped at the opportunity to give this grandfather diapers, wipes, sippy cups and clothing for the kids. May God continue to shower His blessing on this grandfather who showed up at exactly the right time to provide comfort and stability to two little lives.
