David Eley, treasurer for the board of Love, Inc., directs people to a dedication ceremony for their new office and warehouse Sunday on the grounds of the Valley Chapel on Mendenhall Loop Road. Executive Director Don Phelps stands to the right. With the support of about 20 area churches, Love, Inc., helps people in need with food, clothing, furniture, cleaning supplies and senior visitation. The organization has four part-time employees and 15 to 20 volunteers, who have helped an average of 50 families a month since opening three years ago. The office and warehouse took a year to build using volunteer services from local contractors and volunteers. The organization expects to move in in the next two weeks.
