Stop! Don't throw that empty cartridge away.

We would like your empty copier and laser printer cartridges. They're worth money to Love Link ministry.
Save them in a plastic bag and bring them to us.

Needs

  1. Prayer Support.
    Without prayer, we can do nothing. All of us can pray. Pray for wisdom, discernment, power, workers, finances, the board, and sober living participants.
  2. New and continuing financial support.
    Many of our donors give only $5, $10 or $20 per month, but it all adds up. Our donors are the life blood of this ministry to the poor and to the homeless.
  3. Teams on mission trips: Out-of-town Work & Witness teams as well as local skilled individuals for remodeling and renovation projects:
    • Love Link's main warehouse and office.

    • A more fully developed Sober Living Program.
      At present our apartments serve as half-way houses. Plus, we expect the clients to attend church services and at least two AA meetings per week, to journal daily and keep other specified rules of the program. But our need for a full-fledged faith-based treatment program is great.

"When someone steals another's clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and does not? The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry; the coat unused in your closet belongs to the one who needs it; the shoes rotting in your closet belong to the one who has no shoes; the money which you hoard up belongs to the poor."
     -- Basil the Great, early church leader (4th century A.D.)
