MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Money raised from a special event this week are going to help raise the start-up costs to launch a Love INC affiliate in the Central Upper Peninsula.
Pastor Dale Niskanen visited the Sunny Studios this morning to talk about the efforts to start a Love INC CUP program in our region to help the needy.
Pastor Niskanen explained that affiliates are non-denominational, and serve their local community’s churches, helping the church mobilize their congregations to serve anyone with a manageable need in their service area.
Pastor Niskanen talked about the first Love INC CUP fundraising event will be a live and silent auction featuring donated items and services from partners and
supporters of the project.
More than 60 items have been donated for the auction so far, and the event will be held at 7 p.m. this Thursday at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Negaunee.
