Excitement building for Christmas Store, Afterglow


Xmas Store Set-UpThe eighth annual Christmas Store and Afterglow events are set for Dec. 8 and 10 from noon to 7 p.m. at the Corvallis Foursquare Church, 1495 N.W. 20th St.

The Christmas Store is an opportunity for Love INC clients to shop for Christmas gifts to give their family and friends using vouchers they’ve earned during the year doing volunteer work. It’s a wonderful way to minister to families in need during the holiday season.

Donations of new and like-new “gift-quality” items will be accepted up until the start of each event. Items for every age group, but especially teens and adult men, are still needed. Donations can be brought during regular business hours (9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday) to the Love INC office at 2330 N.W. Professional Drive in Corvallis.

Several volunteers are still needed to help set up the Christmas Store on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 7 and to tend to each gift table while clients are shopping on Monday and Wednesday. Many other volunteers are needed to pray with clients, provide rides to or from the store, wrap clients’ gifts for them, fix light meals and snacks for the volunteers, and for various other tasks. Please log on to the Christmas Store Signup Genius account to see how you can help.

Volunteering is easier than ever!


A new online volunteer application is now available for anyone who wants to sign up as a Love INC volunteer through our Web site. The link is always posted on the Volunteer Opportunities page under the Get Involved tab in the menu bar at the top of each Web page.

A link to a hard copy of the application form is also available there for those who prefer to print the application and fill it out by hand. Paper copies of the application should be brought or mailed to the Love INC office, 2330 N.W. Professional Drive in Corvallis (97330).
