Noey's Lovey's

Dear Friends, thank you for visiting Noey’s Loveys.

Noey’s Loveys is an outreach Ministry for children who are in need of a little extra love through the hug of a “lovey.” Children who have suffered loss, illness, separation, or a tragedy that has left them feeling lost.

Noey’s Lovey’s was started by Noelle Keenan who is 8 years old and in third grade. If there’s one thing you need to know about Noelle it’s that she absolutely loves each and every one of her stuffed animals…so much that she couldn’t fit anymore on her bed, in her closet or her toy box. One day though, he mother Wendi decided it was time to say goodbye to some of Noey’s Loveys as there were just too many, but instead of just taking them to a “drop off” Noelle wanted to make sure they went to a place where they could receive the same amount of love that she was able to give each and every one of them. After praying about it, Noelle decided that God wanted her share her love with children who need the love and hug of a new friend. Thus began Noey’s Loveys.

Before sharing each animal with a child, Noelle hugs it very tight, says a little prayer and exclaims that she loves it very much. She is also very blessed herself as with the help of some great friends who have donated their time and their own “loveys” her journey is now endless in the eyes of the Lord.

If you have a need for Noey’s Lovey’s, know of any children or organizations who have a need for Noey’s Loveys or if you yourself would like to donate your gently used or new stuffed animals, please feel free to contact Noelle or Wendi at (704) 989-2139 or Union UMC at (704) 843-2438.

Remember: It’s never too late to share a hug… so share a hug today!
