NEWS FROM AUGUST 2018
From the first day of the month, the Light House Café was blessed with helping hands by the youth group from St. Peters Methodist Church of Wellington who came to serve. Then, on August 2nd, we were thrilled to welcome another youth group from Belvedere Baptist Church of West Palm Beach and also from Groveland Methodist Church of Groveland, Florida who came to bless our patrons with a special Saturday morning breakfast! We were so grateful for these incredible groups of young adults that came to serve and learn more about our ministry, and we welcome them back anytime!
With many people returning from other states where they have been working, our numbers of people served went up substantially this month. Thankfully, just at the right time, we were blessed with 2 adult volunteers, Moises and Louis, who will be with us until the farming season starts. We are very thankful to have their help!
The tile for our dining room is completed! The fantastic work was performed by FM Home Improvement, and at the end of the job Mr. Fernando donated money from the project to be spent on the children living in the apartments around the Light House Café! His gift allowed us to purchase school clothes and supplies for these children. These families were very appreciative, and the kids were so excited to be able to start school with new belongings!
We currently have a wish list for gently used everyday style shoes. If you or anyone you know has any that they would like to donate to the Light House Café to be distributed to our patrons, please contact me, and we can arrange for them to be picked up.
During the month of August, we served 1,203 breakfasts, 3,611 lunches, and 754 snacks! As always, thank you for your continued support and generosity! It is because of people like you that we are able to have the opportunity to continue to fulfill the mission of the Light House Café.
