Capitol Lighting Brightens Lives with House of Hope

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

During October, every purchase — from LED light bulbs to lighting fixtures, fans and home accessories — is eligible for a 5% donation to House of Hope. House of Hope will use the funds to provide food to low-income, home-bound senior citizens.

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

  • Mention House of Hope when shopping at Capitol Lighting’s Stuart store at 2526 S.E. Federal Hwy. The store is in the Regency Square shopping center, right across the street from House of Hope’s thrift store.
  • Use House of Hope’s assigned code — HOHS — when shopping Capitol Lighting online at 1-800Lighting.com.

In addition to this donation program, Capitol Lighting and House of Hope are planning another project that would supply lighting directly to people in need.

About 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.

About Capitol Lighting

From a small shop in Newark, N.J., in 1924 to now more than 85,000 square feet of showroom space in eight cities, the Lebersfeld family’s retailing tradition at Capitol Lighting celebrates nine decades of “making lives brighter.” For more information, please visit 1-800Lighting.com.
