Volunteer – We love our volunteers and could not do everything we do without them! If you have been thinking about volunteering at Light of Life, fill out a volunteer application today. Click here: http://www.lightoflife.org/get-involved/volunteer/.
Make a financial donation – Did you know it costs us $2.34 to provide one meal to one person in need? Every dollar counts and makes a difference in the lives of the men, women and children we serve. Make an online donation through our new website www.give.lightoflife.org or call 412-258-6128 to contribute with a credit card over the phone.
Spread the word about us on social media – We post our current needs and encouraging stories regularly on Facebook and Twitter. Let your friends know about our pages and ask them to like us so they can stay up-to-date, too!
Donate items to specific projects – We have some specific donation needs this fall. If you are interested in helping with any of the opportunities below, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Bri at 412-803-4160 or firstname.lastname@example.org..
· Thanksgiving Turkey Baskets – Help fill baskets with food for Thanksgiving meals. We are partnering with Urban Impact and other North Side organizations to package and deliver 250 Thanksgiving baskets to families who would not otherwise be able to cook this special dinner in their own homes. We are looking for groups to pick one canned good or other item to go toward this project and donate all of it (ex. one group would collect and donate 250 cans of corn).
· Winter Coat Drive – Give new or gently used winter coats. We are collecting winter coats through Christmas to give out to men, women and children who need them.
· Christmas Giving Program – Buy items specifically requested by the men, women and children in our programs this Christmas. Whether a mother cannot afford to buy presents for her children or a man in our residential program is alone this holiday season, help us give gifts that will make a difference.
Bring a friend to our annual open house – Held on Sunday, October 6th from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., our open house is a great way to get to know more about the Mission and the programs we have to help the poor and homeless. Tours will begin at the Mission, located at 10 E. North Avenue, and will also feature a tour of our Western Avenue location. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Kate at 412-803-4138 or email@example.com.
Give a business sponsorship – We have many opportunities for businesses to get involved through sponsoring events and special days. This fall we are looking for sponsors for our annual More Than a Meal gala being held on October 17th at the LeMont on Mt. Washington, Thanksgiving Baskets we are putting together to give to 250 local families, our Great Thanksgiving Banquet at the Mission on Thanksgiving Day, and more. Contact Jessi at 412-258-6166 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about business sponsorships.
Pray for our ministry and the people we serve – Prayer is a vital part of what makes God’s work at Light of Life happen. When we pray, God hears and He moves. Would you like to commit to praying for Light of Life’s ministry on a regular basis? To receive monthly updates on how to specifically pray for Light of Life, please email Cathy at email@example.com.
