|Sharing Hope... Showing Love
|Life Seeds has started local programs to sow seeds of life to those in need.
We are involved in the following local programs:
|Starting in July 2007, Life Seeds began collecting and giving away bags of groceries
to needy families in Corvallis. Our dream is to see this program expand, using people
from various churches and youth groups. Thanks to Albertson's and Gleaners, for
cart loads of donated bakery goods. Thanks to Love, INC for connecting us with
needy families and thanks to Benton County Foundation for a grant to purchase
perishable groceries for this project. Contact us for more information.

Christmas Gift and Grocery Giveaway
|At Christmas 2007, Life Seeds in partnership with Love INC, helped 34 local
families have gifts and food boxes for Christmas. Thanks to generous donations of gifts
from the Boey Byers' family and Toys for Tots in Eugene, each needy child received four
to six presents to open on Christmas. These presents had a retail value of $3,000. One
thousand dollars of groceries were given away and delivered by over 50 volunteers logging
268 volunteer hours. Life Seeds is looking to do this again in 2009.
Contact us for more information or to donate to this great event!
