Thanks to the generosity of donors, community groups, farmers markets, grocery stores and volunteers, last year the Light House distributed:

  • 45,453 bagged lunches
  •  4,800 grocery bags of donated food
  • 19,000 articles of clothing 
  • Provided 25,000 bed nights to homeless individuals and families
    Five days a week of Food Market of perishable and non-perishable food items

This coming year we anticipate providing close to one half million dollars of food to needy families. Without the generous donations from individuals and community groups, we would not be able to provide much needed food to many in our community who are hungry.

Please know that your donations are greatly appreciated and go directly to those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

We greatly appreciate your donations and wish that we could accept all donations but are limited in space. We ask that you donate only the items listed.
