Christmas Blessings – 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 local families in need. For just $40, we can provide a family with enough food to prepare a nice Christmas dinner for 8 people – meat, fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, and more!
Volunteers are needed to help pack at each church on Saturday, December 16th during the morning. For more information or to register, please click on the church where you’d like to volunteer.
