A Light House Christmas

A simple care package, filled with love & care, can have a HUGE impact.

There are currently 8,600+ people homeless across Ireland, this includes adults and children.

Help us care for the homeless with our Light House Christmas Donation drive!

At a time when we are all severely restricted, let’s reflect on the call to reach out and help others, many of us feel a sense of purpose by supporting our community who has acute basic human needs.
