Brighten lives through Capitol Lighting

Update! Capitol Lighting has extended this promotion through Nov. 15.

Capitol Lighting PromoCapitol Lighting is shining a spotlight on House of Hope with the company’s “Making Lives Brighter” program.

Every purchase — from LED light bulbs to lighting fixtures, fans and home accessories — is eligible for a 5% donation to House of Hope. So, as you prepare to light up your home for the holiday season, you can brighten the lives of many.

House of Hope will use the funds to provide food to low-income, homebound senior citizens.

Please join Capitol Lighting and House of Hope in helping those who need it the most. If you’re planning a lighting purchase, October is the time to do it!

For House of Hope to qualify for the Capitol Lighting donation, you must do one of the following:

  • Mention House of Hope when shopping at Capitol Lighting’s Stuart store 2526 S.E. Federal Hwy. (Right across the street from House of Hope’s Stuart thrift store!)
  • Use House of Hope’s assigned code — HOHS — when shopping Capitol Lighting online at 1-800Lighting.com.

Capitol Lighting and House of Hope are planning another project that would supply lighting directly to people in need. Details of this phase of the partnership are being discussed.

The Senior Supplemental Food Program

Each month, House of Hope provides food to home-bound, low-income senior citizens who are on the waiting list for subsidized Meals on Wheels. House of Hope uses donated funds to purchase food and beverages that are appropriate for seniors — shelf-stable, easy-to-open and loaded with nutrients. House of Hope volunteers pack boxes full of the food — adding fresh produce when available — and volunteers from the Council on Aging deliver the boxes to the seniors.

The grateful seniors have often commented, “Whoever is filling these boxes really knows what they’re doing!” That “whoever” is House of Hope, and this food during the fourth week of the month helps them to avoid going hungry when their money is running short.
