We ask that you please call in advance to discuss what type of items you will be bringing. We will have no contact donations on the sidewalk ,which means that there will be no help available for unloading. This will be available Thursday-Saturday 12-5. Small items should be placed in the large boxes provided. Large items should be placed on the sidewalk. Per policy we are unable to take mattresses/box springs, older TV’s, non-working appliances, tires, chemicals, soiled or damaged furniture, sleeper sofas, large TV cabinets unless approved,check with staff for other items that may be added to this list. Please do not bring items when we are not open. This will mean that they will not be used for the mission and will have to be disposed of.
Client services for 70 and older will still be offered on an appointment basis. If you are attending the open pantry on the second and last Saturdays of the month, this will be a drive through situation as well. Arrive between 9:00-9:30. Please remain in your vehicle and wait for instructions. There will be plenty of volunteers to help guide you in this process. You will still need to bring your ID and proof of address as well as your Second Harvest food bank card. Current clients that are in Western Rockingham area consisting of Madison, Mayodan and Stoneville will be served. Folks from other areas please utilize pantries that are closer to you.
Yes, we will still be accepting cash donations. If you are able to support us with funds, please donate.
FUND RAISING ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
The mission is vital to so many in the county who are food insecure. Because we had to close our store to the public, it has greatly impacted our ability to continue the mission as usual. With that said, this is a unique opportunity to use your free time at home to reach out to your friends and family on our behalf. There are many ways to campaign for LOT 2540 and raise funds that are needed to continue to feed those in need. Thank you so much in advance.
We appreciate your cooperation as we work through this unusual time and hope that things will be back to normal very soon.
At LOT 2540, our mission is to care for the most vulnerable of our community – the families and individuals downstream from the COVID-19 event. At times, we all make decisions that are HARD and the decision to close our public facing thrift store was hard one (now re-opened with limited hours). The thrift store currently produces about 60% of the income used to fund our feeding programs, Mobile Market and Elevate teaching ministries. However we serve The Strong Deliverer, and God will provide a way for the willing to love the Least of These.
We will need donations of food, finances and hygiene products to continue the work we have been called to. Please consider giving today.
Who we are
CARE FOR THE LEAST OF THESE...
"To do what it tells us in Matthew 25:40 – care for the least of these – feed, clothe, care…that’s our purpose here at LOT."
"LOT means everything to me. I am able to serve and be in the community. I see people who are hurt and don’t want to go into a church. It’s great knowing that they have somewhere to go. We are being Jesus in the street."
AN OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE OUT WHAT GOD'S PURPOSE FOR ME...
"LOT is an opportunity to live out what God’s purpose for me is. It’s a place where people can come and be the church. A place of hope! A living, thriving community where people are loved with God’s love. We use His mercy and His grace to do the work."
WE LOVE GOD...
"We love God, and we love our neighbor."
"At LOT, we believe in lovin’ all over people! We want to see lives restored."
