We can always use bottled water, milk, caffeinated coffee and individual snack sized bags of chips, pretzels, etc to distribute to shelter residents and lunch-time clients. If you would like to donate any of these items please drop them by the Light House at 10 Hudson Street anytime
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. Click on one of the categories on the top right of this page to see specific needs.
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. There are many organizations and agencies in the community who are in need of many other items.
A few of these are listed here with contact information:
