Love INC prepares for Christmas, Adopt-a-Family

Posted: Friday, October 26, 2012

Want to be a blessing to a family in need this Christmas? Love INC is currently beginning its Christmas Adopt-a-Family Program by pairing community members, churches, businesses or individuals with families in need to provide them with Christmas gifts and a Christmas meal.

Groups or individuals can help Love INC serve families in need by adopting a family this Christmas, donating new and gently used clean toys, giving food items, providing funds or volunteering time. Volunteers help sort toys, make gift selections and help wrap the gift items.

Love INC is also in need of comforters or fleece blankets for the Adopt-a-Family Christmas program.  Every year Christmas gifts and food are given to families in need as part of the program along with warm blankets.

Love INC is currently very short on blankets. The organization prefers new blankets, but will accept gently used in excellent, clean condition.  Also youth groups and individuals are encouraged to make fleece blankets with the edges tied in knots as they are very popular.  Blankets can be dropped off at Love INC, 715 Byron Street. Please let the volunteers know the blankets are specifically for the Christmas Adopt-A-Family program.

Last year Love INC and the community helped to provide Christmas to over 600 children in the Huntington community. To participate in the Christmas Adopt-a-Family program or donate toys, food or funds, call the Love INC office at (260) 356-0933.
