Christmas Season Volunteer Opportunities

Love INC is partnering with St. Nicholas Catholic Church, Mt. Olivet Lutheran West Church, and Westwood Community Church to pack and bring complete Christmas dinner baskets to 100+ local families in need on Saturday, December 15th.This is a family-friendly event and is a great opportunity to share the joy of Christmas with families who may not otherwise enjoy the holiday season.

In addition to volunteering, please consider making a financial gift to Love INC in support of the Christmas Food Packs. This year, Love INC will distribute 100 Christmas food baskets at a cost of more than $5000 total. Each basket costs roughly $50 but provides relief and hope that goes far beyond its monetary value. To make a donation, click here.

For more information or to register, please click on the church where you’d like to volunteer.
Mt. Olivet Lutheran West Church – information will be posted on the Mt. Olivet Lutheran website soon!

Help Us Share the Warmth!


Love INC is working with local churches, organizations, and families to collect new or gently used winter wear items, all sizes and ages (infant to adult), to support the Winter Wear Ministry from now until November 10th.

The following items are being requested:

  • Winter coats (please no spring jackets or hooded sweatshirts)
  • Heavy winter gloves and mittens (please no stretchy non-waterproof gloves as these do not keep hands warm or dry)
  • Snow pants
  • Snow boots/winter boots
  • Toboggan hats
  • Scarves

We would ask that you attach hoods to coats, zip liners in them, and make sure to empty pockets before donating items. We would also ask that you ensure that zippers and buttons function and the items are clean.

Donations may be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Love INC office (1600 Bavaria Road, Chaska) – Monday/Wednesday/Friday, 9 am – 2 pm
  • FurniShare (7890 Market Boulevard, Chanhassen) – Wednesday – Friday, 10 am – 4 pm; Saturday 9 am-noon
  • Discovery United Methodist Church (275 Lake Drive E., Chanhassen) –  Monday – Friday 9 am – 3 pm

Winter wear will be made available to Love INC clients throughout the winter season.
