The Little Lighthouse Foundation hosts multiple volunteer opportunities each month, at varying times and locations throughout South Florida. To see a list of all upcoming opportunities, click the “Volunteer Now” link at the top of the page, or click here.
Adopt-A-Meal at the Ronald McDonald House of South Florida
The Ronald McDonald House provides a “home‐away‐from‐home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child, at little or no cost. The Adopt‐A‐Meal Program ensures that the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House have nutritious meals without taking precious time away from their children. LLF arrives twice a month with sponsored meals from local restaurants, and volunteers to facilitate a delicious and comfortable meal to the children and families residing in the house. LLF will also purchase, prepare, and serve meals with partnering chefs on special occasions.
Volunteers are welcome to make an once‐a‐month, quarterly or even once‐a‐year commitment to help these families in need.
If you know of a restaurant interested in sponsoring a family style meal for 30 for our Adopt-a-Meal program, please email email@example.com for more information and to reserve your spot. Sponsoring restaurants are feature in our monthly newsletter.
Story Hour at the Chapman Partnership
Since 1995, Community Partnership for Homeless has been assisting homeless men, women and children in transitioning off the streets of Miami‐Dade County and on their way to attaining greater stability and self‐sufficiency in their lives.
Story Hour occurs every Tuesday and consists of thematic activities including storytelling, songs, games and arts/crafts. At the end of each story hour, each child chooses a book to keep for his/her library. Annually, LLF provides books to Chapman and other local facilities through their book granting program, supplied by LLF’s Summer Book Drive.
Adopt-A-Floor at Holtz Children’s Hospital
The Adopt-A-Floor (A-A-F) program involves volunteers adopting one or several of the hospital’s patient units; working with children living with a variety of chronic illnesses such as Cancer, Sickle Cell, and solid organ transplant. The group plans events 2-3 times a month, based on the needs of the children’s unit. Little Lighthouse volunteers work directly with the patients by playing games, reading and engaging with them in arts and crafts projects.
