Lighthouse partners with Fruitland Elementary to share God's love in practical and tangible ways. We do this through expressions of service to the teachers, students, and parents.

Family Food Box Project
Throughout this summer we are providing food boxes (two weeks' worth of food) for 33 Fruitland families.

The primary function of the box project is to provide regular amounts of similar types of food to a family every two weeks. pdfClick here to see the SUGGESTED FOOD LIST.  In addition to food, you may choose to include other items. Also, you may choose to substitute food items on the suggested food list for other similar food items. Remember the size of your sponsored family and provide an appropriate amount of whatever you are substituting.

Boxes should be dropped off at Lighthouse Monday through Thursday from 9:00am-4:30pm. Families will be picking up their boxes every other Saturday (see dates below) at 10:00am. You may choose to be available to give your box directly to your family during this timeframe.

Pick-up dates:
June 27
July 11 & 25
August 18 & 22

An individual, a single family, or a group may register to sponsor a family. If you are a family or a group registering to sponsor a family, please register using only one name: your point person's name. Choose one of the following options:
• sponsor a family with 1 child (click here)

**Families and groups, when you register, please pick a point person and use their name only.
