Cook a Meal for a Shelter
Volunteers provide meals to youth at the Lighthouse Sheakley Center for Youth, the homeless shelter, and at the Mecum House. Meals can be made at home and dropped off or cooked in our kitchen.
|How you help||You’ll help give a child a safe place to sleep, a homeless young adult the opportunity to become self-sufficient, and a teenage offender a second chance.|
