From 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Heritage Baptist Church on Forest Drive, guests can enjoy a donation-only lunch of homemade soups, bread and salad to support homeless prevention services. Donations are requested, and all funds raised will benefit the Light House. You’re also invited, but not required to wear your favorite NFL team jersey to show support.
