Holiday Volunteer Opportunities

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
Food donations are also being accepted at the Love INC office, FurniShare, and Snap Fitness in Chanhassen. Please see the flyer below for which food items are being collected each week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHRISTMAS

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 in the morning. For more information or to register, please click on the church where you’d like to volunteer.
Unable to volunteer but still want to help?
Please consider making a financial gift to Love INC in support of the Christmas Food Packs. This year, Love INC will distribute 150 Christmas baskets at a cost of more than $6000.   Text “Table” to 41444 on your cell phone to make a $40 donation to help us offset the expense of this valuable ministry that brings hope to our neighbors this Christmas season or donate online by clicking HERE .

 

URGENT NEED – Queen sheets and blankets

The Linen Closet, a Love INC ministry hosted by Chaska Moravian Church, is in urgent need of queen sheet sets and blankets. They are completely out, which means if a Love INC client requests queen bedding, their need is currently going unmet until we have sheets and blankets in stock!

Donations of new or gently used queen sheets and blankets can be dropped off at Chaska Moravian Church (115 E. 4th Street, Chaska) anytime Monday – Friday between the hours of 9 am – 2 pm.

Thank you for helping us serve those in need in our community. Collectively, we are the hands and feet of Jesus!

Luke 6:38  “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

We’ve partnered with the Chaska Community Center for our Back-to-School Supply Drive!

 

We are pleased to have partnered with the Chaska Community Center for our back-to-school supply drive. From August 20th – August 26th, donate school supplies at the CCC and receive free open skate admission! If you’re already a CCC member, you’ll receive a coupon to bring a friend to open skate. Happy skating!
