Mission


 

" Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness."

                                                                                                                   - Desmond Tutu

 

OUR MISSION:

 

 

 

MEANING BEHIND OUR NAME:

 
 

Project Giving Light is a Christian-based non profit organization determined to give light to homeless children's dark world. We want to be a light in each child's life and bring them love and pure joy. Children are vulnerable and innocent to their circumstances and unfortunately not all children are made to feel special. We want to show these children that no matter what, God loves them!

 

 

Each letter in "LIGHT" of Project Giving Light has meaning.

L- Love

I- Integrity

G- Grace

H- Hope

T- Truth

 

 

" Nothing can dim the light which shines from within." - Maya Angelou

- Clothes                                         -Food Cards

- Food Pantry Essentials              - Wish List Birthday Gifts

- Field Trip Sponsorships             - School Supplies

- Lunch for School Children

 

" There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." - Edith Wharton

 

 

Each of our birthday celebrations include a party filled with fun decorations, balloons, party favors for all, music, yummy birthday cake and punch, and of course birthday gifts. We have each child give us a birthday wish list so that we can purchase gifts they desire. We love to make their birthday dreams come true!
