Holiday Program Volunteers and Donations Needed
As the holiday seasons near, LINK is gearing up for our two holiday programs. On November 16th we will serve over 650 families and we need your help! Volunteers are needed to sort food and clothing, escort clients, and deliver to homebound families. We will also need food and used coat drives!

On December 14th we will provide clients with food and new toys for children newborn through 16 years of age. We will need more food drives and toy drives to support this program.

LINK was in desperate need of a new and improved website, one that was mobile responsive. After several years of praying, Perfect Sense steps in and selects LINK as a mission project. Perfect Sense was founded with giving back to its community core to its mission. After four months of intensive work, they presented the new website to LINK. Words cannot express our gratitude for their hard work and passion for giving back to the community in which they work. As an added bonus, Perfect Sense provides lunch for their employees every day and the leftovers are donated to LINK. A win - win for everyone!!
