The nonprofit ministry Love In the Name of Christ (LoveINC) of Greater Merced County, which has helped needy Merced residents for 20 years, is in danger of closing its doors.
The group said in a press release that it may have to close its office because of a lack of donations. The nonprofit helps 2,624 individuals and 1,748 families each year get help in the form of food, transportation to medical appointments, furniture, diapers and baby formula.
Since its funding comes from donations alone, the organization is asking Merced residents to consider sending a special donation to support its efforts.
Charitable tax donations may be sent to: Love INC, PO Box 2141, Merced, CA 95344.
