Love Thy Neighbor started out in 2010 when a small group of women embarked on a life-changing journey in early spring. Realizing the need for a daily feeding program for those less fortunate in our community, we partnered with The Salvation Army Lewisville Service Center to support and manage the newly installed kitchen. The Kitchen program was born and Love Thy Neighbor became a partner with The Salvation Army of Lewisville.
LTN, along with The Salvation Army – Lewisville Center, opened the Clothing Assistance Program (CAP) in April, 2013. Gently worn and donated clothing items are distributed at ‘no-charge’ to qualified clients 2.5 days a week.
In 2015, LTN merged with Newborns in Need and became that program became Love Thy Baby, the third LTN program and the first not directly related to The Salvation Army.
Shortly thereafter, in 2015, Love Thy Pet was born out of a need to do something with the scrap material out of Love Thy Baby. It was determined that there was a need for dog beds at animal shelters, rescue organizations, etc., so LTB volunteers now make dog beds with scrap material from LTB.
