Mount of Olives Lutheran Church

Mount of Olives Lutheran Church was built on a cotton field over 50 years ago. Today they sew that cotton into “Quilts of Love” that are distributed to the less fortunate, one of the outreach program of this remarkable church. Another is their Clothes Closet, where they collect and disburse a multitude of items made available for a modest cost or oftentimes free if a particular need is critical.
Since 2006, Waste NOT has been collaborating with Mount of Olives in their Food Closet outreach, delivering thousands of pounds of food to them annually. In addition to food, Waste NOT has also been able to supply the church with excess sundries, toys and household items. Their remarkable team of volunteers distributes the food once per week to all who need a helping hand.
They remarked “there is no way, shape or form that we would be able to do this without Waste NOT…they are invaluable to us.” Waste NOT is proud, honored and grateful to partner with the kind, generous and selfless members and volunteers of Mount of Olives Lutheran Church. You are a beacon of hope to all of us.
