Needs of the Ministry


The first three Saturdays of each month Love In Action helps up to 25-30 people, representing 75 people or more, with food and hygiene items, as well as clothing. Please help us keep our shelves stocked, so we can continue to help meet the needs of the homeless and needy in Dothan, Alabama.


If you, your family, small group, church or civic group can help please do. Donations of food and hygiene items may be dropped off at our office on Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Our office is located at 279 W. Main St., suite 2, Dothan, AL, behind the former Dakota Coffee shop in downtown Dothan.


We also need paper, plastic and cleaning products to help with each ministry we do. Finances are always welcome to help meet the daily, weekly and monthly needs of the ministry, such as mortgage payment of buildings, insurance, utilities, upkeep of buildings and vehicles, etc. Most of all, we need your prayers.


If you give financially, please mail your tax-deductible financial donations to: Love In Action, P.O. Box 85, Dothan, AL 36302.

    Finances are a great need as Love In Action operates off the generous donations of individuals, churches and businesses. Please pray about becoming a regular monthly supporter of Love In Action to help us reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to help those who cannot help themselves. 


    As you give, you are storing up treasure in Heaven (Matthew 6:20). Love In Action is a 501(c)3 non-profit, so all of your donations are tax deductible. You can send your tax-deductible donations to: Love In Action, P.O. Box 85, Dothan, AL 36302.

  • Prayer

                                                

    We believe prayer is very powerful. This is not an easy ministry, so we are very thankful for your many prayers. Your prayers strengthen us. Please pray for those we reach out to, that their hearts will be softened and they will make decisions to follow Jesus.


    We are praying for you just like the Apostle Paul writes in Colossians 1:3, "We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you..."
