What We Do

Light A Lamp Mission Statement

Light a Lamp is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit representing selflessness and service.  We encourage the vulnerable, brighten the lives of those struggling, and acknowledge exceptional work ethic and inner strength.

Main areas of vulnerability we focus on are children born with cleft and craniofacial deformities and school-age children struggling with suicidal thoughts and feelings of hopelessness.

Project Lift Up

Project Lift Up supports youth who struggle with feelings of anxiety and hopelessness.  Light A Lamp works with schools in our community to provide encouragement with a mental health package and let students know - "you are not alone!"

Cleft Lip / Palate Family Support

Light A Lamp works with the Providence Maxillofacial Program associated with Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital to support families of children born with cleft lip and/or cleft palate.  We provide custom gift baskets and host events to help families connect with each other.

Assisted Living Home Deliveries

Light A Lamp supports the elderly in assisted living homes, providing small gifts to bring encouragement and brighten lives.  We also partner with local schools and youth groups to give kids the opportunity to take part in these special deliveries and learn about the joy of giving to others.  Children may create handwritten cards to accompany the gifts, or older children may assist in projects such as making blankets. 


Recognition Gift Baskets

Employers can nominate an employee or volunteer to be a recipient of a gift basket in appreciation of their efforts.  Also, Team Light A Lamp occasionally hands out luminary gift boxes to people in the community who help and inspire others and embody the spirit of Light A Lamp.


Club Light A Lamp

Club Light A Lamp, aka our Selfless Giving Experience Student Project, is an opportunity for students to get involved with helping others through feelings of depression.  Students make bracelets or cards which they can hand out to other students to show that someone cares.
