I honestly didn't know that much about the LOT Project until recently... & wow. It's an amazing initiative & I'm so glad our MOPS group is helping!
So here are a few things I've learned & thought I'd share:
What does The LOT Project stand for?
"The Least Of These Project"
How does the LOT Project help our community?
They have several main focuses:
- HOPE, which stands for "Helping Other People Eat" -- people line up for a hot meal & the opportunity to fill a bag with clothing from the free thrift store
- Donation Center -- every Monday evening, volunteers organize donated clothing, toys, school supplies & other items for the free thrift store
- AHOP, which stands for "Anderson House of Prayer" -- a 24-hour worship center that's open to everyone
- The Block Party at D. B. Walker Park -- a day-long event that provides free food, entertainment & helps build the community. Since its inception, the Block Party has served over 2000 meals with the help of 300+ volunteers.
Why should you go tomorrow at 10:30am?
Because it's a wonderful opportunity to teach your kids about giving & service to others here in Anderson.
