LHLT hosting orientation meeting tonight for Thanksgiving meal delivery

The push is on for volunteers to help pack Thanksgiving dinner plates for those who need them as well as pack supplies and food for the mission field.

The ministry, Love Him Love Them is holding a volunteer orientation meeting this evening, at the Boyd Outz Center in Lavonia, according to ministry founder Linda Gunter.

Last year, hundreds of volunteers helped serve and deliver over 2,000 people in Stephens, Franklin, and Hart Counties with meals for the Thanksgiving holiday.

This year, Gunter says they expect to feed some 3,000 people in Stephens, Franklin, and Hart Counties.

Meals will also be going to the jails in our area, according to Gunter.

Then on Saturday, volunteers are needed to help pack 20,000 meals going to those in need in Haiti.

Again, the orientation meeting for anyone interested in volunteering to pack and/or deliver meals is today at 6:30 p.m. at the Boyd Outz Learning Center in Lavonia.

Additionally, Love Him Love Them is still in need of 1,000 individual desserts and 350 bottles of laundry detergent prior to Thanksgiving. Gunter says you can drop off desserts and laundry detergent at the Boyd Outz Learning Center.
