Blog Action Day – Poverty

On October 15, 2008, in blog action day 2008, by Leigh Graves Wolf

I’m writing to alert you to a wonderful local program called the Lighthouse of Oakland County.

The services these deserving people received were provided by LOC’s three key subsidiaries: Lighthouse Community Development (LCD), rejuvenating communities through affordable housing and educated homeowners; Lighthouse Emergency Services (LES), providing emergency food, housing, medical, utility and other services to people who need immediate help; and Lighthouse PATH (PATH),
which provides long-term housing and support to help women achieve
self-sufficiency and a healthy family environment for their children.

Last year was the first year I participated in their holiday adopt-a-family program and it was a wonderful experience.  This year, in addition to adopting a family, I am also adopting a senior citizen and volunteering my time during the holidays to help sort donations. There are many, many ways to help with their initiatives – donating time, money, goods, etc.  Thanks for listening and if you have time, take a minute to participate in Blog Action Day too!
