Love INC is sponsoring Homeless Connect on Sat., Feb. 1, 8:00am-1:00pm at First United Methodist Church. Love INC will come together with area agencies, churches, and hundreds of volunteers to help remove the barriers of homelessness in Tuscaloosa County. Homeless guests can receive any and all services provided, free of charge. The services range from legal, medical and dental assistance, vaccinations, prescriptions, eye exams and eye glasses, to resources for housing, education, employment and much more.
Want to help?
- Volunteer - Register online at http://www.loveinctuscaloosa.com/homeless-connect/
- Donate - We are collecting sleeping bags, umbrellas, and ponchos. Drop off at the church by Jan. 26. You can also make a financial donation if you would prefer.
- Drive a van - They are using our church vans to transport guests. We need at least 2 drivers. Drivers will need to be at First Methodist with our van at 6:45 and should be through by 2:00. If we have more than 2 volunteers, we can divide into 2 shifts. If you are interested, please email Donna Colburn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year Homeless Connect served 165 homeless guests. This is an excellent opportunity to serve others in our community. Please contact Debbie Gregory at email@example.com if you have questions.
