With the holidays rapidly approaching, we are gearing up for our Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Basket deliveries! We have two upcoming volunteer opportunities for you.

THANKSGIVING

Volunteers are needed on Saturday, November 18th 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, 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 Chaska Community Center Community Room 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 to whom they will deliver food baskets, spend a little time with each family, and share a prayer with them.
