To Our Love INC Partners,
Thank you for being a vital part of Love In the Name of Christ of Linn County! So far this year phone volunteers have received 5,136 calls for help from people in our community. Church volunteers have responded by providing clothing, transportation, yard work, visitation, firewood, medical equipment, diapers, furniture, moving crews, school supplies, household and hygiene products, linens, holiday meals, by fixing cars, and building ramps. Each need met is a life touched by the Love of Christ shown through a practical act of service.
Let me share with you a few snap shots from 2016…
- Our medical ministry has delivered 530 hospital beds, wheel chairs, commodes, shower benches, Hoyer lifts and other durable medical equipment to our neighbors in need.
- Volunteers have worked diligently to provide free firewood to thirty-four families so far this year struggling to heat their homes.
- Last year in partnership with God’s Heart we gave Christmas gifts to 515 children. This year we anticipate a similar number of children blessed at Christmas!
Thank you for your prayers, time, and generous financial support this past year. Volunteers spent 348 hours moving us into our new location at 1606 Santiam Rd. where we soon will be expanding your ability to serve neighbors in need through a career closet, budgeting classes, parenting classes and more. Please prayerfully consider giving a generous year end gift and together we can join the Lord in transforming lives and our community throughout 2017 and beyond.
