 Love Inc

You may have noticed, from your bulletin, that some things at Zion are on summer hiatus and some new things are just gearing up. Our outreach through LoveINC  is ongoing as we collect  (family size) Personal Care Items for the needy. Please continue to look for sales that will maximize your donation: laundry and dish detergent / toilet paper, paper towels, and tissues / feminine sanitary supplies and baby diapers / shampoo, conditioner, combs and brushes / toothbrushes and toothpaste / bar soap, deodorant, razors, and shaving cream ... all of these are daily necessities that cannot be purchased with food stamps. Leave your donations in the first alcove on the right in the parish hall and they will be delivered to Our Savior Lutheran's Love INC Personal Care Pantry! Thank you!

army_soldiers.jpgZion's Platoon

There are 20 US Army soldiers - 15 men and 5 women - deployed from Puerto Rico through August 2015.  They are in a Postal Unit and are responsible for getting the mail delivered. They have non-potable running water for bathing, 220V power and a Chow Hall with designated hours. There is no PX Store to purchase items or supplies. Our packages will help fill their needs, and also represent our support and appreciation for them. Letters and notes to the soldiers are always appreciated in addition to the snack, toiletries and items to help boost morale like current magazines, DVD movies, puzzle books and greeting cards they can send home. Please place items in the basket at the front of the church and I'll arrange to have them sent to the soldiers. Thank you for your support of this mission. Marcy Wagman

Love INC

A note from our volunteer coordinator, Jewel Ratzlaff - What is a bridge without bolts?  Well, pretty much like a ministry without volunteers!  Volunteers are the life and soul of Mid-Hudson Love INC. Love INC is currently looking for:

1.   A volunteer who has a computer, a phone, and a little time to coordinate furniture donations.  Can be done completely from home.  Respond to individuals offering free furniture and interface with the furniture ministry head regarding current needs and storage space.  No lifting.

2.   Two or three volunteers available either MondayWednesday orThursday morning, 9:30 to noon to work with clients (by phone) in the clearinghouse. Training provided. Supportive environment.

3.   Individuals interested in working one-to-one with clients in the LINC ministry. Meet weekly with motivated client and walk with them toward their goals.

       4.   Prayer-ers, planners and givers!


Want to talk about how you might become the connecting bolt in our bridge?  Contact volunteer coordinator Jewel Ratzlaff at or call 896-4126. Our next general Volunteer Orientation is scheduled for Wednesday, July 1 at 7:00 p.m. at New Beginnings (35 DeGarmo Road, Poughkeepsie); This provides a great way to get to know the ministry and discover how you could plug in.  RSVP appreciated to Jewel Ratlzaff at 896-4126 or
