Love Inc. in need

of Volunteers

There are many opportunities to volunteer in the Love INC organization. Not everyone is able to move furniture, clean houses, or mow lawns, but there are many things that need to be done right in the office or on the telephone.

Right now we are in need of some people to do clerical work, such as stuffing envelopes, filing papers, and general office work.

If you are interested in the call center, you may find that you would like to take incoming calls from clients to see what their needs are and pray with them. A brief training session will have you ready to help out here.

Love INC partners with ReStore. They are busy here sorting through donated clothing and goods and waiting on people.

We often have clients who need a ride to a doctor or dentist appointment. If you are interested volunteering, call the Love Inc. office at 563-3394 leave a message. Someone will return your call.
