The Lighthouse Holiday Food Drive is Here!

Help make Christmas a little merrier for an Atlanta family.

Beginning Monday, December 11, the Lighthouse will serve as a collection point for canned and other non-perishable food items as part of our holiday food drive. We’ll accept donations through Friday, December 15, with all items going directly to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. You may drop off all items at the Lighthouse front desk – we’ll take care of the rest!
