Christmas will be here before we know it! Our annual Christmas Store has been highly successful in bringing joy to many families who have completed classes in our New Directions Life Skills program. It is a wonderful reward for their hard work and dedication in improving their situations.
Families are able to shop at our Christmas store, purchasing new and gently used items using their points. They also receive food for a complete Christmas dinner, pajamas, and other clothing at no charge. The feedback and appreciation from those who have been able to participate has been truly heartwarming. This experience gives them a sense of dignity – they are able to purchase items for their children. The heartfelt appreciation we have received in providing this ministry is very rewarding.
Please consider supporting this ministry with a donation of new toys, gift cards (great for teenagers), clothing, sporting goods, jewelry, and anything a child ages 1 to 18 would enjoy. Cash donations are also accepted; simply note your donation “Christmas Store”. We have a wonderful group of volunteers who will shop and purchase items with the gift cards or cash donations. We also need volunteers – contact Love INC to find out more about getting involved. This is a wonderful event staffed by many volunteers who look forward to this every year.
Please bring your donations to our office at 2735 E. Apple Ave. or call 231 773-3448 for more information.
