Upcoming Breakfast

Please check in on our Facebook page for weekly menus and also for coming details about our next fundraising event.  We are planning to serve breakfast next time, on Saturday, December 10th.

Waterville Florist and Formal Wear Surprises with a Grand Gift

We were surprised (wowed, actually) by the extraordinary generosity of Waterville Florist and Formal Wear.  This wonderful local establishment is celebrating their fortieth year in business with a spectacular sale of roses at 1982 prices.  While the entire community benefits from such an offer, all proceeds from this sale event will be donated directly to WASK!  We continue to be humbled by the generosity of our community, as it rallies to support our efforts to continue serving the needs our neighbors.

Spaghetti Supper Success

We are happy to report that our Spaghetti Supper fundraiser was a success! With the assistance of many volunteers, including students from Mount Merici, we welcomed many generous guests who helped us to raise $1,500. We also wish to thank Holy Cannoli and Hillman’s bakery for their contributions to a delicious meal and to Sherri Gauthier for providing a lovely wine and cheese basket for raffle.

Door Dash Delivers

The Lighthouse has now partnered with Door Dash to deliver meals to those who find it difficult to join us in person. In addition to making deliveries to some of our clients, Door Dash also has made a gift of $3,000. To WASK.  Thank you so much!

Spaghetti Dinner

We're really looking forward to seeing you. Please come, and bring family and friends. Or grab some meals to go. (Click image for larger PDF flyer)

We could not do this without your support!

We understand there were many applications received for funding.

Huhtamaki Volunteers Support Soup Kitchen Effort

We are thankful and excited to have a group of volunteers from Huhtamaki join our team every Thursday to help serve our Community! It is wonderful to see our list of volunteers grow with area businesses taking an interest in helping those facing the challenges of homelessness and food insecurity. We cannot be a thriving community when we know there are some among us who are going without basic necessities such as food and housing. We appreciate you! Thank you for your generosity!
