• Each year we collect and assemble Blessing Bags with toiletry items, socks, gloves, & a warm hat in order to gift others on Christmas morning.
About the Event
CityLight Outreach will be serving the homeless and less fortunate in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Christmas morning. CityLight has been serving the homeless in Atlantic City for over 10 years. CityLight Outreach is a project of Ignite Youth Ministries, a non-profit 501c3 organization. Part of CityLight’s work is utilizing a mobile food truck to serve food to those in need, free of charge. We also gather donations of clothing and household items to try and meet the needs of those in our community. CityLight doesn’t quit on the holidays, this Christmas, we will be serving breakfast, while providing “blessing Bags” (gift-wrapped boxes of toiletries, socks, etc) for each individual, and providing gently used coats, hats, gloves, etc. This Christmas we estimate there will be around 200 participants, if not, more. On Christmas morning, they will receive, a warm meal, clothing, hot coffee, gifts, & more. If you are interested in joining us this Christmas, we would love to have you serve with us!
