Connex Credit Union Donation

Thank you SO much to Connex Credit Union for collecting over 500 items, including towels, toiletries, and linens, for Linens of Love. They also donated $1,000. This was the best Christmas gift as these donations will surely make a difference in many people’s lives this winter season. Thank you & Happy Holidays!!!!

L.O.L. Board Members Make Deliveries!

This week, some of Linens of Love’s own board members packed up and made deliveries to several community organizations. We are so thankful for how invested our board members are in our mission. This was a great way to kick off the holiday season and to remind us it’s all about giving!

Linens of Love was so excited to make its first drop off to Animal Haven in North Haven. When L.O.L. receives donations that are too worn, we donate them to Animal Haven so we can help our furry homeless friends too!!

Abbate Staff Helps Out with Linens of Love

We want to send a big thank you to all of the Abbate Insurance Agency staff that recently helped sort, organize, and send out handmade blankets to Columbus House and the New Reach Women & Children’s Shelters. These blankets were very much appreciated by all of those who received them! Thank you to those who donated, as always- your donations give these individuals in the homeless community a little extra love this holiday season!
