Virtual Food Pantry
The Lighthouse Virtual Pantry is our "online food drive". We understand summer is a busy time for families so we've made donating to our emergency food pantry as quick and easy as possible. Last year, Lighthouse provided emergency food to 3,638 families and with your help, we will be able to continue feeding local families.
