As a veteran myself with the U.S. Army Special Operations Command from 1979-1986, I have a special place in my heart for all the men and women who have served and continue to serve in the armed forces to protect our rights of freedom and peace at home
throughout the world.
Please visit our pagededicated to these brave men and women who put their lives on the line each minute of the day so you don't have to and donate to worthy causes that help support our returning veterans.
CHRISTMAS 2014 NEEDS:
We are asking for your help and
assistance to help make three very needy children and families have a Merry
Christmas this year. We know that this
is a late request but a few of our partners in Jefferson County called us to
see if we could help these wonderful people who are destitute and deserve
assistance through life changing events in recent months.
Normally, through our holiday
programs – “Christmas is for Kids”, Operation Santa Claus USMC and Operation
Santa Claus, US Army – we would have extra items available for use but with the
economic hardships this past year, we fulfilled double the number of
applications from 2013 and our cupboards are bare at this moment.
I am attaching a copy of the
donation needs that we are requesting.
is a single, divorced mother of three who found out she has stage three Liver
Cancer, lost her job and health insurance.
is an elderly grandmother who gained custody of her four grandchildren at the
death of her son, daughter-in-law and one child in a recent automobile accident
and had to move from her fixed rent controlled apartment.
is a single father of four who recently lost his wife to a three year battle
with cancer and is working two jobs to keep a roof over their heads.
We will provide a tax deductible receipt
for donations, you can claim the donations as a tax deduction on your income
taxes and if funds are provided, you will receive a receipt for each item
purchased for these families.
ADDICTION RESOURCE GUIDE
We have obtained all the applications for this year's program: 2500 in the State of Alabama and 3200 nationwide.
If you still need assistance, please contact your nearest Marine's Toys for Tots or Salvation Army Angel Tree Programs.
January 26 - February 1, 2015!

ALL MONETARY/PRODUCT DONATIONS FOR THESE PROJECTS ARE

JOINT PARTNER WITH:
Prison Fellowship International
Billy Graham Institute for Prison Ministry
God has given us two hands, one to receive with and
the other to give with.
------Rev. Billy Graham
" May the Christian church never be regarded as a special interest group. We're here because we love our neighbor."
-------Charles Colsom, Prison Fellowship
(knew him for 30 years before his recent death)
There is never a charge for any of our services and we donate our time and labor to The Lighthouse for Recovery Ministries, we are not paid for helping others, therefore 100% of all donations are used for assistance and help for those less fortunate.
