Volunteer Recognition

HOME

Love Thy Neighbor is 100% volunteer based.  We opened our doors in November 2010 managing the Salvation Army Kitchen in Lewisville, Texas. Our biggest accomplishment is feeding lunch to the needy and homeless - to date, over 80,000 healthy and nutritious hot meals. 

LTN also manages the Clothing Assistance Program (CAP) that opened in April 2013.  To date, over 10,000 clothing items have been distributed
at  'no-charge' to qualified clients.  More than 400 winter coats were given
away during The Angel Tree interviews October 1 & 2.  

                                                         Thanks to our many donors, volunteers and friends - individuals and 
                                                         families are eating and have clothing and shoes on a regular basis.
                                                         We are thankful for all you do with us.

About Our Organization

The kitchen served approximately 3,500 meals each Quarter in 2012.  By year-end 2012 we served over 60,000 meals. To-date, we have served 80,000 healthy and nutritious meals. Additionally, we prepare to-go bags daily for those who are homeless or are unable to prepare an evening meal. We are always in the need of additional volunteers to help prepare and serve the meals. We are so blessed to have loving volunteers make each hot meal from “scratch” each day. Many thanks to individuals, churches and businesses who have so kindly provided fresh fruit and produce from their gardens and stores. We have been able to offer the most delicious salads and vegetables to our guests through these amazing donations.
