We need your help to reach LITE’s goal of raising $200,000

to create 400 life-changing jobs over the next year and to support LITE’s economic development activities.

 

This work includes creating 600 fresh-food based hampers put together with the loving kindness of volunteers, and employing 40 people from our neighbourhood to pack and deliver hampers in our community.

 

Your support will give someone a “hand up”— valuable work experience for someone experiencing barriers to employment, connection to a community-based organization, and the chance to earn cash and feel empowered.
