Grant Highlight of the Month
Lighthouse Missions Suffolk County New York $4,000
Lighthouse Mission serves 1,800 individuals in Suffolk County, New York, each week through its evangelistic Food Outreach programs.
Our focus through these programs is to provide "Hope Beyond the Food" by not only assisting the poor with emergency food for their families but also sharing the saving message of Jesus Christ for all to hear. Lighthouse Mission is committed to prayerful mentoring of those struggling with poverty, especially through our Youth programs for at-risk kids and teens.
Funds will be used to help meet behind-the-scenes expenses for the Mission's Food Outreach programs, including fuel for vehicles, maintenance, and building utilities. Vehicle fuel and maintenance are especially significant costs because of the mobile nature of our food outreaches, which bring food to nine communities in need.
