Personal Care Pantry

With the State budget cuts taking effect, people in poverty will be hit hard. Those currently getting TANF financial assistance of $453.00 will be reduced to $368.00 a month and those that got GAU of about $339 will not get any financial support. In an effort to be of some help we are creating a new “GAP” ministry in the development of a Personal Care pantry that will have items people can’t purchase with food stamps such as: Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Laundry Soap, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Female Hygiene Products, Diapers, Baby Wipes, Body Soap.

We’d like to ask donors and churches to consider “Adopting a Product” pick an item and donate that item as a special gift or you can set it up to subscribe here online and it will send monthly to help us stock the pantry for those clients who are calling on the churches for assistance. To get these items people will still call our help line and then will be given a voucher to pick up the items at our Christian Bookstore. People will not be able to “Come in and just shop” for items. Bags will be put together with the items they asked for and brought over to the bookstore for the people to pick up. When you purchase your items on our link you can purchase a “Special Gift” for that day or you can “Subscribe and set it up to send the gift monthly, every two months or once every three months and the items will be shipped directly to our Christian Bookstore. How convenient is that? You don’t have to wait till your day off, you can order from the comfort of your own home, when the time is right for you! Super saver shipping even saves the shipping cost, and a small percentage of the purchase price even gets donated back to Love INC by Amazon. The gift that keeps on giving.
