What is Loads of Love? Loads of Love is a ministry opportunity that assists people with washing clothes after a catastrophic event. The first event in the diocese occurred after Hurricane Laura, and the program proved beneficial to those impacted by the recent snow storm as well.
How Does it Work? Members of different churches in the diocese go to laundromats and offer to assist with the cost of doing laundry. This opens opportunities to discover other financial or pastoral needs some may have after a natural disaster.
