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.

 

Thanksgiving Volunteer Opportunities

2018 Thanksgiving Basket Assembly and Delivery Help Needed                                                         

Volunteers are needed on Saturday, November 17th to help Love INC and West Union Lutheran Church deliver Thanksgiving Baskets to local clients in the Eastern Carver County area.

Volunteers may be couples, families, friends, youth groups…anybody who wants to spend a few hours on a Saturday to help spread God’s message of love. Volunteers should report to the gymnasium at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Chaska at 10 a.m. to help assemble food baskets using food donations received from the community. Each volunteer group / family will be assigned 2-3 families (located within the Eastern Carver County area) to whom they will deliver food baskets, spend a little time with each family, and share a prayer with them.

We anticipate this event will take 2-3 hours total, including basket preparation and delivery time.

We hope you will join us!

Be Kind
