Williams continued that she and her volunteers are very happy to be able to start up LINC Meals again. This vital service delivers meals to local elderly and shut-in residents. She added that volunteers are still needed for this program. If you can help, e-mail Mimi Rhyne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Business Blitz,” ongoing restrictions and more
In other news, during a normal year, this would be the time for the ministry’s annual “Business Blitz” fundraiser to start up, as Williams noted.
“Last year,” she said, “this fundraiser brought in over $20,000. It will not happen this year. We, along with the community, want to support our businesses as they work to reopen and stay open. We hope to have our golf tournament Aug. 8 at Lincoln Country Club. I hope it will happen. We are going to plan for it.
“The ministry will continue to operate as it has been,” she added. “We are limiting people on site and giving out food and financial help only. People can take showers here.”

“Our current needs are laundry detergent, bar soap, crackers and canned meats,” Williams continued. “Please pray for the ministry, for our clients, our volunteers and our staff. Pray that we will continue to find places to purchase food. Pray that we can keep the ministry clean and safe.”
