Thank YOU for blessing our Love INC neighbors in need!

While our office may be closed, we are hard at work wrapping up from the end of the year! Every year at our annual Christmas store, we ask our participants to write a Thank You note for the things that they have received both at our store and throughout the year. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the Thank You notes:
 
“Keep doing what you do. Some of us have come to return to God. Some faster, some slower, but we are coming back to the house of God. So thank you for this help.”
 
“Christ is Jesus with skin on; and through Love INC and cooperating churches, I’m so grateful for the LOVE I’ve been shown. It was so much needed!”
 
“Thank you for helping me grow, letting me see things in a different day. It’s a nice break from all the negativity in the world.”
 
“I have 4 boys and it is so hard to make ends meet. This program has blessed me and my boys so much through education, community, and meeting our needs.”
 
“God bless all of the staff, volunteers, and all those who have donated their time, talents, and gifts in obedience to Jesus’ love for others.”
 
“I was able to support my family this Christmas, without you, I could not have made that happen.”
 
“Thank you for allowing God to use Love INC to bless the people that HE loves so much”.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Here at Love INC, we are having a fantastic Christmas season. We got to set up our wonderful Christmas store for our New Directions participants. At our Christmas store, we were able to offer toys for our children, home goods to help our families get ahead, gas cards and bus passes for holiday travel, and more!

We had around 100 participants for our Christmas store who had saved about 5,000 points to spend. These hardworking neighbors in need had been saving their points all year in order to ensure that their families would have some great Christmas presents. Amazing volunteers helped all throughout the process, helping the families choose items and keeping track of how many points they had already spent.

Over and over again, we heard what a blessing this was to people’s families. One neighbor in need was going to see her grandchildren for the first time in 5 years, and she was able to get them Christmas presents because of this great event!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Christmas store this year. You were a huge blessing to many families who will be able to have a Christmas because of your generosity.

United Way Day of Caring

Love INC of Muskegon was mightily blessed to be a part of United Way’s Day of Caring. We had amazing volunteers who came through to help us reorganize our clearing house and back room storage area. They made light work of what would have taken our staff a very long time!

The reason that Love INC was blessed with these amazing volunteers is because United Way is aiming to help the ALICE population, those who are Asset Limited, Income Restrained, and Employed. Love INC is very passionate and striving to serve the same population! In this video, hear our Executive Director, Matt Kaley, say more.
