Do Good Local exists to aid us to obey the Lord's command to love our neighbor as ourselves. 

"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Matthew 22:36-39

It reflects our comprehensive approach that goes beyond providing food and helps those in need get to a place where they can get back on their feet for good.
