Resource & Service Ministries
Furniture and Appliance Ministry
The furniture and appliance ministry provides gently used items such as couches, beds, chairs, dining room sets, refrigerators, stoves, etc. to people living without them. These items are given to Love INC, inspected/repaired, and then made available to clients. The furniture and appliance ministry is staffed by volunteers from many different local churches.
Bedding and Blanket Ministry
The bedding and blanket ministry is coordinated by St. Paul Lutheran Church in Sheldon and distributes both new and used bedding of all kinds. Pillows, mattress pads, sheets, blankets, quilts, and afghans are cleaned, sorted, and organized by volunteers at the church. Bedding is then delivered or picked by people in need of them.
Household Items Ministry
Pots and pans, dishes, small kitchen appliances (coffee maker, toaster, etc.) are available through the household items ministry. Items are delivered to the home of the client requesting the items by various volunteers from our partner churches or picked up by clients during open warehouse hours.
The transportation ministry coordinates rides for people needing help getting to and from medical and counseling appointments. Ride requests can be for local transportation or transportation out of town. For respect of our volunteers’ time, a week’s notice is required for all transportation requests.
Shop With a Cop
The Shop With A Cop ministry is a partnership between Love INC and local law enforcement agencies. New school clothing, backpacks, and school supplies are provided to qualifying students grades K-8. Each participating child is matched with a Christian volunteer for an evening of food, fellowship and shopping.
Thanksgiving Meal Ministry
During the thanksgiving season, meal boxes are provided to families referred by local schools and agencies. Families pick up their boxes and enjoy a time of food, fellowship, and learning.
