Letter from the Director
In 2014, we received 1,709 requests for help through the Love INC Clearinghouse Program. Through other channels, over 1,810 other requests were served. Of these 3,500+ requests only 45 had to be denied and 67 never called back to get the help they requested.
"Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
1 Thessalonians 5:17-18
Dear Love INC Supporter,
When you encounter a person in need in the community, or even in your own family, where do you turn? If you’re like many in our community, you refer to Love INC.
Because you know those you send will receive confidential and prompt attention, informed referrals, and prayer. Your contributions have helped make Love INC one of the most active serving organizations in Moffat County. We are so grateful to you for helping to create and support our committed team of church-volunteers who work to meet individual and family needs through the many programs developed. You are helping our volunteers touch the lives of thousands – whether people are facing an urgent financial need or simply needing a box of food and a friendly home-visit. Your gift is extremely important because it offers immediate resources that are directed to current needs at this time of year. Let God direct you as you decide the amount you can afford to give, but know that whatever you send will help make an immediate impact on urgently needed services to our community.
Our volunteers and staff – every one here who works to serve you joins me in thanking you for your generous partnership and support. If you’d like, you can specify your gift to a particular program – The PBJ food program for preschool to middle school students, the Clearinghouse Program-the heart of Love INC, Emergency/Transitional Housing Program, Personal Needs Ministry, Food Pantry Ministry, Budget and Cooking Classes, Holiday Outreach Programs – wherever you choose.
Please send your gift today. Financially, we are at an all-time low this year but requests for assistance are still high. All of us are counting on your support. Your donation is helping to make our community a wonderful, hopeful place to live.
Thank you so much for your help.
