Re-purposing

NEW! If you enjoy making friends, looking for ways to use your creativity, and reduce waste all at the same time, then consider joining our re-purposing group. It’s surprising what can be created from items that would otherwise be discarded. We would like to not only re-purpose items for the resale store, but also hold classes for volunteers to teach them how to re-purpose.

How you help Volunteer opportunities are available in our Resale Store, Food Pantry, and Clearinghouse, through Gap Ministries and our Transformational Ministry. In addition, we also have several short-term projects and partner church ministries in need of willing hands and hearts. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people in the community, and to form long-term relationships.
About us The Love INC relational ministry model contains three main ministry modes; The Clearinghouse, The Gap Ministries, and Transformational Ministry. Each mode goes deeper in fulfilling Love INC’s mission to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ.
