Immediate Needs

Important Note:

  • Truck
    • As many of you know, we launched our first social enterprise last year, Rescue Dogs, a Food Truck that serves gourmet hot dogs and fries with all proceeds benefiting Light of Life. We are about to head into a busy spring season and we are in need of a 3/4 ton truck with a crew cab to haul our hot dog stand. If you or anyone you know would be willing to donate a truck and/or contribute toward the purchase of one, please contact Doug Smith at are willing to allow a donor or organization to advertise on the side of the truck. If you are interested in booking the truck, visit:
  • Items for our Men’s Transitional Housing:
    • 2 small lawnmowers
    • 2 weed whackers
    • Porch/Deck Furniture
      • Two outdoor tables, chairs, or picnic tables.
    • If you’re able to donate any or all of these items, please contact Rusty Bryner at 412-803-4147 or
  • Food Donations – We are continuing to take food donations. To donate food, contact our Food Pantry Coordinator, Kayla, at 412-803-4146.
