Note from ED-Feb2023

Each year Love in Action donors make a difference in a variety of ways. Some give clothing, furniture or other household goods. Others provide food keeping the pantries well-stocked with needed food resources. Many give financially, using the Love in Action website or sending a check to 326 N Ferry St. Combatting the challenges of poverty in our area requires all varieties of giving.  

Co-op update

Bringing Light to a Dark Moment

Despite a series of health issues Pete had been suffering with, he was managing and remaining strong. But his latest health diagnosis came as a surprise – cancer. His particular cancer is believed to have been caused by the work to which he had devoted 35 years of his life. Still, being an independent person of strong spirit, he soldiered on.

Note from ED-12.2022

At Love in Action the mission truly is simple. Occasionally it can sound complicated with dozens of ministries and partners all working together to meet needs. And often individual lives are complicated. Yet our true mission is simply to build up, encourage, and restore what is broken. As St. Paul once put it, we seek to encourage each other and build each other up. For each of us there are places of brokenness. LIA is a community of people who come around each other with the love of Jesus.

Thank you for your gift. Lives are changed, not merely because resources make a difference, but also because compassion does.
