What type of items does Love INC need?
The same things you needed to start your first apartment. All items must be in good, usable condition—would you use them in your home? Items outside of the basic needs for our struggling neighbors will be provided to our Loved Twice Thrift Boutique to financially support the ministry.
How to Donate
Contact us by email donations@loveinclakecounty.
