Where Does Your Gift Go?

Your financial donation directly impacts the lives of local families in need.  Our unique model affords us the ability to fund 80% of our annual budget through purchases made in our stores and revenues from recycling.  This means that your financial gifts can go directly to providing local families access to food, clothing, and household items.

At Salt & Light, senior citizens, people with developmental, social-emotional, and physical limitations, as well as those who are under-employed or unemployed all work alongside one another. Each person utilizes the skills, gifts, and abilities God has given them to provide for themselves and their families.


One of our credit earning participants shared the following about her experience at Salt & Light:
“No matter what else is going on in my life, when I arrive here, I feel good about where I am
and what I’m doing. I have been abstinent from any dependency for about a month and
haven’t needed food pantry support for all of last year! My life is getting better and better.”


The demand we have experienced for the kind of programming we offer forced us to place a cap on the number of households we can currently accept at 225. We need your help to continue making our current programming possible, and to grow to include those now finding themselves on a waiting list.


Our hope in 2020 is to open our waiting list to 100 new local families in need. Our average credit-earning participant costs our ministry $100 per month in the store credit spent on groceries and household goods. Your financial donations offset this cost and allow us to provide - in addition to access to food and household items - educational opportunities, a full-service computer lab, and relational support.


Your dedicated financial support makes stories like the one above possible. Would you please consider a one-time or recurring sacrificial gift to strengthen our mission? Together we can change lives and transform our community.
