This Little Light

A friend of mine runs this non-profit organization and I think it's for such a good cause that I wanted to share with you. I hope you will support as well...

"This Little Light, Inc. (“TLL”) is a non-profit organization formed in April 2008, to serve the under-privileged, homeless and sheltered women and children of New Jersey. This Little Light is heavily supported by Oasis Christian Centre and their congregation, along with donations and sponsorships from various groups, organizations, small businesses and individuals.

In December 2008, TLL hosted their first “Annual Christmas Party”. Homeless, sheltered and foster children from New Jersey and New York were treated to a holiday celebration complete with “wish list” gifts and a visit from Santa Claus.

In May, 2009 TLL, hosted a “Pamper Me Day” for the women in the shelters. The women were treated to complete makeovers. Our volunteers were hair stylists, manicurists and make-up artists, each one blessing the women with their talents. Afterwards, lunch was served and gifts were presented to all the women. Child care was provided on premises so the mom’s had a worry free Pampering Day.

Recently added to our annual calendar is our Summer Picnic. With plenty of food and activities, including games, arts & crafts and the Fun Bus, the picnic has quickly become a favorite with our clients and their families.

The tireless work of our staff, volunteers and supporters help to make each event a success. Because of these hard working individuals, we are able to continue to offer these three events annually, while continuing to respond to the many needs throughout the year.

TLL also volunteers once a month at a nursing home where we enjoy the company of their seniors.

In April, 2010 TLL was given a Certificate of Appreciation from the YWCA Eastern Union County for the work we do with them. We were also given a Citation from the State of New Jersey General Assembly.

TLL is able to continue its work due to donations from corporations, small businesses and individuals as well as individual fundraising. We are grateful to those who have supported TLL and we are always looking to partner with new organizations, corporations and individuals that wish to support our efforts.

Our goal is to be a resource to the community, to be able to help, support and provide where needed. It is our desire to be able to make a child feel good inside and grow up knowing that they matter to others. Our future goal is to be able to provide college scholarships. Our goal is to help women, who are leaving domestic situations to become financially sound through education and to build confidence and self-esteem.
