If you - as an individual, a family, a church group, or Christian organization - would like to collect your used Christian literature to give to Love Packages, there are a couple of different options for getting it to them:
1. If you live close to Butler, IL, you can bring the materials to their headquarters and drop them off. While there, feel free to stay and lend a helping hand. (See volunteer information below).
2. If you don't live nearby, use sturdy boxes to pack materials in packages that are 35 pounds or lighter, then mail them via 4th class Media Mail through the United States Postal Service.
Aside from sending Christian literature, are there any other ways to support Love Packages? YES!
VOLUNTEER at the headquarters: If you are close enough, they always appreciate an extra set of hands. Ways you can help include: painting, maintenance, office work, cleaning, organizing, gardening, etc. If you are interested in being a volunteer for a day (or more), please fill out the Volunteer form and they will get back to you.
DONATE: Monetary donations are needed to maintain and expand the ministry. (A 20 ton container to Africa costs approximately $4,000.) If you do not wish to donate online, you can also send to the address listed above.
SPREAD the Word: Tell your family and friends about this ministry, send the information to other Christians, or ask a local Christian bookstore to place brochures on their counter to advertise the ministry. Bulletin inserts for your church can also be downloaded HERE.Supporting Love Packages in any of the above areas is a great way to help make a difference in the lives of others.
PRAY: A vital component to having a successful ministry.
A good thing to do. People need to know others are there for them.ReplyDelete
