Registration is OPEN for our 2018 Chari-Tee Golf Tournament!

It’s our annual fundraising golf tournament, but in a new venue!

What could be better than spending the day on the golf course? Spending it on the golf course with friends while supporting a Christian nonprofit organization, of course!

We cordially invite you to join us at our annual Love INC Chari-Tee Golf Tournament. Bring along your friends, relatives, or business associates and we’ll have a great day, rain or shine.

Give Your Furniture New Life!

Every day, Carver County residents throw away gently used home furnishings that have the potential to change a family’s life! Please consider donating your gently used home furnishings to our FurniShare ministry. The following items are currently on our “most needed” list:

  • Twin mattresses and box springs
  • Twin metal bed frames
  • Nightstands
  • Coffee tables and end tables
  • Countertop microwaves

Donations must be clean and in good condition. Please call FurniShare at (952) 974-7829 to make arrangements to have your items picked up (a $25 fee does apply to cover fuel costs) or drop them off during normal business hours. (FurniShare, 7890 Market Boulevard, Chanhassen).

 

Love Never Fails

URGENT NEED – Twin Mattresses

 

Imagine not having a bed for your child to sleep in…without a proper night’s sleep, it’s hard for children to concentrate, making success at school difficult. Twin mattresses, box springs, and metal bed frames are one of the most common furniture requests we receive. But right now, we have a critical shortage. We have ZERO twin mattresses currently. That’s right – ZERO. Not being able to provide a child a place to rest her head breaks our heart. If you have a twin mattress you are no longer using, please consider donating it to FurniShare.

Mattresses in gently used condition (clean, no rips or tears, from a pet-free, smoke-free home) may be dropped off at our FurniShare location (7890 Market Boulevard, Chanhassen) anytime Wednesday – Friday, 10 am – 4 pm, or Saturday 9 am – noon.

“Let him sleep, for when he wakes, he will move mountains.”
