Lighthouse Mission makes plea for holiday donations

The Mission based in Bellport provides food for the hungry and homeless, but says this holiday season is especially difficult.

BELLPORT - The Lighthouse Mission is calling on residents to feed the homeless this holiday season.

The mission based in Bellport provides food for the hungry and homeless, but says this holiday season is especially difficult.

They say it is because of cuts to the government food assistance program, which means more people need help.

The mission is now making a plea for donations to try to handle the increased demand for help.
