Going above and beyond comes naturally to Gallatin County Love INC. A partnership of area churches, Love INC offers help to anyone in need. Food and personal care items, prayers, and children’s Easter baskets are among the ways Love INC provides for neighbors.
When COVID-19 hit Montana, Executive Director Rob McCormack put his scientist skills into action. A former clinical trials principal investigator for BioScience Laboratories, McCormack understands sanitization, safe materials handling, and protocols for running meetings and general operations. He recently presented webinars to Love INC organizations across the U.S. and nonprofits throughout Montana.
Today, Love INC counsels clients by phone or screen. Its regular Car Clinics are temporarily replaced by referrals to garages that need the work. And the organization is attaching gloves and hand sanitizer to the outside of donation boxes. “We want to continue to serve our neighbors in a responsible way,” McCormack says. “It’s in my heart to use my knowledge to help people.”
