LAMATEK will be making a contribution to the Lighthouse Christian Center of Philadelphia in the form of new, unwrapped toys.
This annual Christmas program reaches out to over 500 children, men, and women in need from the Philadelphia community. The Lighthouse has been running this program for over 25 years and has provided much needed food for the less fortunate, coats for the homeless through shelter visits, and Christmas gifts to underprivileged children. LAMATEK has participated for the last 10 years by donating toys and attending the Christmas party when the toys and other gifts are distributed to the kids. It truly is a “giving” event. This program could not be sustained each year without support from generous people who are willing to give what they can to help others have a better Christmas holiday.
As in recent years, LAMATEK is especially concerned as corporate donations are way down and there is a much shorter time to collect gifts this year. If you feel it in your heart, please give what you can whether it be food, new Christmas toys, or even a gently used coat. Besides toys, there is a shortage of coats this year in the Clothing Ministry. Please check your closets for any gently used winter coats or jackets that you no longer need and consider donating them. LAMATEK will be taking any donations up until the evening of the party.
The Lighthouse Christian Center is located at 2945 Wharton Street in Philadelphia. For more information about the Lighthouse ministries, visit www.phillylighthouse.org.
Thank you for anything you can contribute to help this program be successful this Christmas!
