Gap Ministry Operations
Please contact our Gap Ministry Outreach Team with any questions regarding volunteering or requests for assistance at 231.652.4099 or email email@example.com.
Project Ramp volunteers have built more than 130 ramps since 2007! Many churches do not have the staff or the funds to assist families with construction needs such as a wheelchair ramp. When Love INC partner churches combine volunteers and resources… together, we are better able to meet people’s needs.
Requests for ramps are received and verified through the Love INC Clearinghouse. Once the need is verified, volunteers from several partner churches work with the family to get the ramp built. Funding for ramp construction comes from many sources…family contributions, church and individual donations, and grant funds from the Fremont Area Community Foundation. If you are in need of a ramp, interested in volunteering with Project Ramp, or would like to donate to this ministry, please contact Love INC at 231-652-4099 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Birthday Bag Ministry
Church volunteers provide children’s birthday bags to the Love INC Pantry. Each bag contains items such as a cake mix, candles, and a birthday card for distribution to children whose parents shop at the pantry. This ministry is a great way to let children know they are loved!
Bunk Bed Ministry
Volunteer teams build the bunk beds and assemble them in family homes. Along with each bunk bed set, the children receive a new set of sheets, pillows, and comforters or quilts. Bunk beds may be earned by families attending the Growing Hope Financial Management Program or families may receive direct assistance with bunk beds through the Clearinghouse.
Volunteer quilters meet monthly to turn pieces of material into beautiful quilts and lap blankets for children, parents, nursing home residents, and residents of local domestic violence shelters. The quilts are also used by our Bunk Bed Ministry Team.
Wood Ministry (wood for heating homes)
Love INC has wood depots located in Newaygo, Grant, Fremont and White Cloud. Volunteers serve this ministry in a variety of ways: donating wood; meeting on a monthly basis to cut, split and stack wood, and delivering wood to families in need.
Grant Men’s Ministry (GMM) – A Partner Ministry of Love INC
The Grant Men’s Ministry reaches out to the boys and men of Greater Newaygo County through monthly Saturday speaker breakfasts and various special events throughout the year. For the past several years, GMM has sponsored a Homeless Prevention Auction and Dinner with Love INC. Auction proceeds are used by Love INC to help families with needs such as financial management classes, property tax assistance, utility assistance, and home repairs. Please contact Love INC for more information on Grant Men’s Ministry events.
