To increase your impact, we have an Amazon wish list of needed items. When you purchase items using AmazonSmile, the items can be donated and we will receive the AmazonSmile donations well!
Clothing and supplies
Everyone has old clothes and extra items laying around their house that could make a big difference for those we serve. If you are cleaning out your house, keep LOV in mind. Contact us to arrange a drop-off.
Items of greatest need
- Feminine hygiene products
Other needed items
- Sleeping bags
- Small propane tanks
- Dog and cat food
Every Sunday, our volunteers prepare and distribute meals to those in need. Sometimes they are simple bagged lunches, other times we are able to provide meal trays or large catering-style trays of pasta. If you would like to provide food, please contact us to make arrangements.
Blessing Bags and Purses
Blessing Bags are quick handouts filled with non-perishable snacks, hygiene supplies, hand warmers, condoms and other items that will help those in need. Blessing Bags are also a great way to send messages of hope, love and offers to obtain help with addiction or ways out of their current situation.
We also use purses as Blessing Bags for our sex trafficking outreach. If you have old purses laying around, we’ll pack them with supplies and distribute them!
Blessing Bags are also a great way to get groups involved. Scout troops, school groups and other organizations can plan a bag/purse packing party from donations they collect. Just drop off your packed bags and we will get them to those in need.
