United Way Day of Caring


Thank you to PotashCorp for helping us build a roof top garden and flowerbed in front of our building on United Way’s Day of Caring. We could not have done this without their support!

The volunteers worked hard to construct the boxes, pick out the perfect plants, haul a lot of soil, plant everything, all to beautify our community and hopefully even provide some fresh food!

We are grateful to the United Way for organizing Day of Caring every year. Many projects have been completed at the Lighthouse and in the community thanks to this initiative!

Coldest Night of the Year – Feb 20th

On February 20th, Saskatoon has something to celebrate – and so could you!

That’s the night folks in Saskatoon will join thousands of others in 75 cities across Canada in “The Coldest Night of the Year”, a 2, 5 and 10 km winter walk-a-thon in support of the hungry, homeless and hurting.

In Saskatoon, we’ll be walking for The Lighthouse Supported Living and The Bridge Fellowship Centre.
The Lighthouse provides housing for anyone in need of a place to call home by the operation of a men’s and women’s emergency shelter, supported living suites and affordable, independent apartments. The Lighthouse also operates a Mobile Outreach Service and a Community Kitchen Meal Program to help street entrenched individuals in our community. The Bridge serves the homeless and/or poor in our community by providing fellowship, clothing, food and household essentials, all supported by a dedicated group of volunteers and staff.

Our goal in the WALK is to raise $50,000 on February 20th with the support of 40 teams and 250 walkers. We are looking for:

Sponsorship: First, we are still looking for a  Lead Sponsor for $5,000 this year.

With 200 walkers and over $46,000 raised last year, this year we are anticipating an even greater response for our third year!

Participation: Second, would you also consider engaging the WALK by registering a team and recruiting employees to walk and raise money with us that night?

The WALK is something special. It’s fun, challenging and meaningful. The Lighthouse and The Bridge are also something special and its work and service in our community are essential. Please consider joining us by walking and sponsoring this great event.

And remember, it’s cold out there.
