Love, Inc. is involved in a wide variety of annual events; some of which we sponsor, some of which we are the grateful recipients. Throughout the year, please keep in mind these happenings which support our mission:
Friday Night Lights: Come join us for an evening of fun, fellowship and fundraising! Our largest Fundraiser is a dinner that includes an silent and live auction of items donated by friends and local merchants that remains different for similar events; it’s relaxed and has a come-as-you-are attitude! Held the first Friday of March, mark your calendar now because this party always sells out quickly.
Toy Run: During the first Sunday of September, the sound of motorcycles fills the air as the Tri-County Riders take to the streets to support the Love, Inc. Adopt-A-Family program. Riders collect toys and cash donations which we use to supply presents to those families which are not adopted during the holiday season. After the run, the riders return to the Chocolatefest grounds to eat a meal prepared by Love, Inc. We always need volunteers the day of the Toy Run; if interested in helping please call our office (262-763-6226) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scouting for Food: Love, Inc. is the recipient of this food drive done by area Boy Scouts. Look for the bags distributed in mid-March.
Turkey Trot: Held Thanksgiving morning, the Turkey Trot supports the food pantry by donating a portion of the proceeds. Volunteers are needed for this event to help register participants, work as route markers and bake pies for their raffle. For more information about the run, click here.
Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive: This is our largest food drive of the year, sponsored by the United States Post Service. Look for the bag delivered to your home in May.
Thank you Racine Community Foundation for your continued support! http://www.racinecommunityfoundation.org/index.html
Circle of Love: Sponsored by Thrivent Financial, the Circle of Love Campaign is a donation matching initiative held at the end of the calendar year.
Share the Love Challenge: Love, Inc. is one of the local charities supported by the Kielhofner Community Fund. Recognizing that charitable gifting drops off after the holidays, monetary donations made to the food pantry in January and February are matched by the Fund.
Stuff-the Bus: Held every August, the Kiwanis Club helps us procure needed school supplies for local students.
Bill Martin Food Drive: Sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and named after a long-time Love, Inc. volunteer, the Bill Martin Food Drive held in November is a fun evening of food and raffles which support our food pantry.
Thank you Burlington Community Fund for all your support!
