Love INC seeks sponsors for Christmas
While there are three months left until Christmas, Love In the Name of Christ started the season Oct. 1 with the beginning of the Sponsor-A-Family for Christmas program.
This annual program was developed to ease the burden of Christmas shopping for families already struggling to make ends meet. Sponsor-A-Family brings together those needing assistance with families willing to help bring joy at Christmas time.
Families seeking help are asked to contribute $5 per child or volunteer one hour per child in order to participate.
A food card is also provided for a Christmas meal. Sponsors do not have to volunteer at the event; however, volunteering is encouraged and appreciated.
Love INC partners with Dunningville Reformed Church and with many community sponsors in the area. The church provides coordination of the program and space for the event on Saturday, Dec.13, at 2559 M-40 North, Allegan.
Love INC is taking applications for assistance until Nov. 21. For assistance or sponsorships, call the Love INC office at (269) 751-2533.
