Linens of Love
Griffith Lutheran Church in Griffith is the host church for Linens of Love.
Linens for bed, bath, and kitchen are provided to Love INC clients who have had their needs verified through the Love INC Clearinghouse.
The church members received donated items that have been gently used. Items are laundered and receive minor mending, if needed. Then they are sorted and stored. If a client is able to pick-up the linens, a church member will be present to meet with the client and offer words of encouragement. If the clients needs the linens delivered, church volunteers will schedule to do that also. Sometimes, linens are provided to the volunteers with the Love INC Furniture Ministry so that they can be delivered at the same time as a bed.
Donations are always welcome and they may be taken to Griffith Lutheran Church (219-838-1626) or the Love INC office. Please call first to be sure some one is available.
Items that are new or gently used are always welcome:
- new, inexpensive bed pillows
- sheets - crib, twin, full, queen
- bedspreads for all ages and genders
- blankets and throws
- towels - they don't have to match.
- plastic mattress protectors for children who are bed-wetters
- bath rugs
- showers curtains and rings
Ladies from Griffith Lutheran Church enjoy working together to provide linens for needy families.
"She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy." Proverbs 31:20
