Adopt A Block

There is a need for many things in the Newberg area.  With your help, the clearinghouse has been successful in filling many of the physical needs.  However, no matter how much stuff you give someone, the need for friendship, care, transportation, and above all, the need to be valued, can still be there.  Love INC wants to encourage churches to Adopt a Block and help fill these needs.  Adopt a Block gives opportunities for people in your church to use the gifts God has given them.  For example, if God has given you the gift of singing, you could call someone and sing them happy birthday.  If God has given you the gift of a car and time, you can volunteer to take someone to an appointment, or to get groceries.

The Purpose: to foster relationships with people in the community
