RAMP IT UP for love!

 

Love in the Name of Christ’s Project Ramp ministry has been building handicap ramps for nearly 20 years, providing freedom for our Muskegon County neighbors in need. Imagine yourself wheelchair-bound, stranded indoors and unable to get out to the doctor. Or out into your backyard. Or back inside on a cold winter’s day.

Or worse yet, have a way out if there was a fire.

This vital ministry enables people to engage in an active and productive lifestyle, and provides safe access in and out of their homes. It gives freedom, security, and peace of mind not only to our neighbors in need, but to their families, as well. What an amazing gift to give a family, while spreading God’s love with a servant’s heart!

Neighbors in need call our office regularly to apply for ramps from all over the county. A typical ramp takes 6 – 8 weeks from the time we get the phone call, until the ramp construction begins. Donations help to speed up the process, by enabling Love INC to build our inventory of metal ramp parts or to purchase the wooden materials needed to construct the ramp. Once the application is received, funding is in place, and paperwork is complete,  our group of volunteers step up and in just 2 days…

The Project Ramp ministry would not be possible without the gifts and talents of volunteers from area churches, civic organizations, and businesses.  This is a powerful way to show Christ’s love to those who could not get a ramp any other way. This is a powerful way to feel Christ’s love by helping your neighbors in need.

Won’t you join our team today? Volunteer for one of our crews or support our ministry with a financial gift.

Our goal is $10,000 for this quarter, which will build approximately 6 ramps. Send your donation with RAMP IT UP for Love! in the memo.  You can also go to the GoFundMe campaign link at gofundme.com/RampItUpforLove or visit

What is Love INC?

Love INC brings local churches together in order to fulfill our mission:

“Transforming Lives In the Name of Christ Through the Church”

Transforming lives is made possible through the wonderful partnerships we have with our area churches and ministries.  After our phone volunteers screen and send our neighbors in need to our partner pantries, the real ministry begins. It may be inviting them to attend church, praying with them, or giving them information about their programs and services. We join forces with them to help our neighbors become self-sufficient by extending a hand up, not only a hand out.  Our partners show them the love of Christ by their words and actions.

Our fantastic volunteers initiate the transforming of lives as they give of their time in the Love INC office where the relationship begins – screening the calls, working one-on-one with our neighbors in need, teaching and mentoring in our life skills classes, working in our warehouse, picking up furniture and food, preparing kids care boxes, delivering newsletters, serving on our board, stocking shelves, serving on committees, and drawing and/or building handicap ramps.  GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
