WEST DEPTFORD, NJ – LAMATEK is making a donation to The Lighthouse Christian Center of Philadelphia in the form of new, unwrapped toys for the 2016 holiday season. Employees of LAMATEK will also be in attendance at the annual Lighthouse Christmas party on December 16, where gifts are distributed to the children and their families. For the last 12 years, LAMATEK has donated gifts, food, coats and time to the annual Christmas program that reaches out to over 500 needy children, men and women from the Philadelphia community. The Lighthouse has been running this event for almost 30 years to provide much needed food for the less fortunate, coats for the homeless, and Christmas gifts for underprivileged children.
LAMATEK’s contribution to the Lighthouse program could not be sustained each year without support from generous employees and friends who are willing to give what they can to help others have a better holiday. As in recent years, we are especially concerned as corporate donations are down and there is a shorter period to collect gifts this year with the event falling on December 16th. LAMATEK will be accepting donations from the community as well, whether it be food, new Christmas toys or gently used coats up until the evening of the party. Appropriate gifts include non-electronic toys for boys and girls, from infants to young teenagers, that do not require batteries and do not promote violence (such as toy guns, swords, etc.)
