Help Lighthouse Spread the Love!

Spread the Love is a Peanut Butter and Jelly focused food drive that occurs annually in February and March. What all started with a group of girls in Clarkston, MI has grown into an annual community effort and Lighthouse benefits greatly by receiving hundreds of jars of peanut butter and jelly to distribute to local families in need. DID YOU KNOW... ONE JAR of peanut butter can feed a hungry child lunch for three whole weeks?

Lighthouse is always in need of volunteers! They are an essential part of the work we do; without them, we would not be able to help so many families in crisis. We welcome all volunteers! Individuals, Groups, Corporate Groups, Schools, Churches, you name it. Check out our Volunteer Page for more information on volunteering at Lighthouse, or just contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Laurie Taylor, at (248) 972-1480 or [email protected]

Host a Fundraiser

Hosting a fundraiser can be one of the best ways to raise money or items for Lighthouse! We are always in need of food and personal items for our Pantry.
