ABOUT US

We give love to everyone by distributing food, clothing, toys, and education!

LEOA’S Core

Mission

WE GIVE LOVE TO EVERYONE BY DISTRIBUTING FOOD, CLOTHING, TOYS AND EDUCATION.

Distribution is a key component to how we fulfill our mission, and how we actually show love to people. This is attained through:

  • Local food banks (or food pantries)
  • Toy drives
  • In-person and online education for both children and adults

Vision

TO FILL THE WORLD WITH LOVE AND MAKE THE WORLD POVERTY FREE.

LEOA: Love Each Other Always. We believe everyone is worthy of love, all the time. We picture a planet where every person has enough food, water, and access to education.

Core Values

LOVING, GIVING, SERVING, HONORING, AND EDUCATING.

While giving to the needy is the most important duty for LEOA we seek to do it with love and respect. We have a serving culture where everyone feels accepted and appreciated—a place that values dignity. Our desire is to educate and empower others.
