What's New

What if this holiday season, instead of just alleviating hunger with a Christmas Hamper, you could also make a long term impact on the lives of those in need? What if your hamper created training and job opportunities?! It can.

The reality is that there are people struggling to overcome barriers to employment in our inner city. LITE's Alternative Christmas Hamper program uses the power of "buying local" from businesses and agencies that provide jobs and training to help people overcome these barriers. We provide a hamper, but do so in a way that creates opportunity and hopefully lessens the strain on hamper programs in the future.

You can give a hand up, not a hand out. Donate to LITE's Alternative Christmas Hamper program today and help make a lasting positive impact on our inner-city.

I am an individual who would like to donate
