Total Living Center is wanting to open a place at their facility where the homeless in Canton can wash their clothes.  We are partnering with Hartville Hardware to provide three heavy duty washers and dryers.  We need to raise $2,400.00 toward this purchase.  Any extra will be given to the Total Living Center. 

LOVE IS A VERB NEEDS YOU!  There’s a chill in the air.  We are in continual need of blankets and coats with hoods.  Older heavyweight blankets are best and preferred.  Please don’t buy new!  Thank you so much for your continued support of the ministry caring for our homeless friends.  We appreciate you. – Lisa Rowland
