Love INC is in need of help with cleaning medical equipment that is needed by those in the community. Please read this letter from Love INC with details below:
The focus of our client requests has changed in the past 6 months. Fewer moves, fewer household needs, fewer folks wandering about. There has been a great INCREASE in requests for medical equipment. We have also had a great increase in donated medical equipment. Praise God! The difficulty is in having a lack of volunteers to clean and safety check the donated equipment.
Many hospitals, care facilities, rehab centers will not discharge their patients to go home unless they have the needed equipment. It grieves our hearts to have what people need but be unable give it away because of a backlog of equipment needing to be cleaned. We have a crew of two men here on Mondays to safety check and clean. If you had people that would help us out, they could get trained on a Monday and thereafter come of any day of their choosing.
Many of our clients need the equipment delivered. I now have a crew of two men to make deliveries on Thursday, but they often cannot get everything done. We would love to have a second crew of two guys who had a pickup truck, or trailer, to pick up and deliver medical equipment. This second crew could pick any time or day they are available to serve and we would make the documentation available to help them plan a route. This aspect of the ministry involves face-to-face interaction, so face masks are probably a good idea. More importantly, we need these men (or women) to be compassionate, caring, and full of Christ’s love for the people they serve. We want to pray for everyone we connect with, after all, we are “Love In the Name of Christ”
Would you please carefully pray about these two needs and consider the folks in your fellowship. Perhaps some are bored with nothing to do and would be willing to help us. Let them know, and me too! I would gladly answer any questions you or they may have. May God Himself richly bless you and your church during this season of opportunity.
