Our partner Centro Multicultural La Familia is packing 400 boxes of food every other Friday for families in need. The packing takes place from 9:30am-12:30pm Fridays at 2228 East Mall Drive in Pontiac. They are following all CDC guidelines and need to be extra careful because they are working with food. Anyone 18+ can help 16+ with a parent/guardian. Click the button above to sign up. The link above is for all of Lighthouse food packing dates. We are most concerned with volunteering for Centro Multicultural La Familia on alternate Friday mornings.
The blankets are NO-SEW fringe tie fleece blankets. Joann Fabrics sells kits (~$24 but they go one sale often) or fleece can be bought by the yard (2.5 X 3 Yards). Click the button above for instructions.
The blankets will go along with brand new beds to kids who are currently sleeping without their own bed.
The instructions linked above will lead you through 3-4 hours of random acts of kindness around your community. Great for the WHOLE family. Kits with all the supplies you need can be picked up at the church from the donation shed.
Things to DONATE:
All donations can be dropped off anytime in our donation shed outside Eagle Entrance at the church.
ANGELS' PLACE: Our friends at Angels' Place homes are in need of paper towels, facial tissue, laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, liquid hand soap, and antibacterial wipes or spray.
BLANKETS through Church World Service. Every $10 buys a blanket that can provide warmth and shelter, healing and hope wherever God’s people may need care.
Our Community Partners
It's hard to stay on top of ALL the amazing things our community partners have going on. Check our their websites to see everything they have coming up.
Welcome Inn is a low barrier day center for people experiencing homelessness in our area. They have a donations list on their website, volunteer schedule, and a sign-up to pre-make casseroles for their feeding program.
Micah 6 Community seeks to bring affordable fresh produce to the Pontiac area. They have community gardens, a mobile food truck, and community events that could use your help.
Forgotten Harvest recovers food that would be thrown away and redistributes it to people in need. Their volunteer sign-up process is easy and the work is always a good time.
