Due to COVID-19, the Look Up Center programs are closed and we are not accepting donations. We will follow the directive of State and Local Government as well as the CDC and World Health Organization guidelines. We want to protect the health and well being of each of you as well as our volunteers, our team at LUC and their extended families. There will be a limited number of team members available to take emergency calls and provide assistance if we have the resources you may need. If you are in need of emergency needs, please call 740-345-6026.

Updates at the Look Up Center

We have continued to meet the need through porch drops and pick-ups at LUC of hygiene products, toilet paper, canned food, eggs, bread, milk and other critical needs items.  Our supplies have diminished, however, we are still taking calls 24/7 and if we have what someone needs we will most certainly provide it.


A few testimonies of those we have been able to bless over the past three weeks:

Elizabeth - "I am a single mother of two and was recently laid off from my daycare job.  I am in need of toothbrushes, toothpaste and some canned food."  We were able to bless her with all that she needed and also provided eggs, and Easter baskets for her two children - she was go grateful

Yvonne - "I am a stage-4 cancer patient who is immune compromised and without transportation and I just need help!"  We were able to provide food, toilet paper, hygiene products, eggs and bread - she was so moved by this gesture.

Art - "He called to get some help with food as he didn't have transportation to go out and no family nearby, while we were talking he said maybe I don't really need anything, I just need to hear a voice on the other end of the phone and we talked for 15 minutes."

We have made 100's of deliveries in our community 7 days a week for the past three weeks.  To be honest, I think our small team has been blessed way beyond what we were able to provide.  We've met so many wonderful people who just needed a hand up and that's what we were able to provide.


Thank you to all who made a financial donation, food donations and of course for all of the prayers that have gone up for the Look Up Center!  Without each of you this would not be possible.


About the Look Up Center

The Look Up Center is a Faith based non-profit established by Scott and Bernice Hayes in 2004.  Our community center is mainly supported by local churches, individual contributors, and volunteers.

Look Up seeks to bring restoration to the individual, the family, and the community.  We believe that the truth of Christ is the only source of true redemption and deliverance from addictions and suffering and that it is not enough to equip the people with just their physical needs, but their spiritual needs as well.  We look to Jesus’ life as the model of our mission.
