Check out the highlights on this page to see what kids in our community are doing to make a difference.

This is Johnny,
he is 10 years old. When he was younger, his family depended on programs like Lighthouse's Adopt-a-Family program to help their family to have a nice Christmas. Now that his family is in a more stable place, he wanted to give back by donating all these wonderful toys to the families who depend on Lighthouse's Adopt-a-Family program. He delivered the items to Lighthouse with his grandfather in December, 2017.
