This charity has one focus: helping women and children. First Light stays on track with their annual pancake breakfast, and gala event. Since it offers the only emergency shelter open 24 hours a day, this is a non-profit that is also a haven for homeless women and children.

I have been a volunteer at First Light for several years but this year was my first time participating with their yearly Pre-Iron Bowl Pancake Breakfast. It was wonderful! The cooperation of All volunteers was a beautiful thing to watch unfold. The eagerness of every single person to do the very best at whatever job they were assigned, made me proud. Proud to be apart of such a great team of volunteers. I can honestly say that the staff at First Light are wonderful, professional and big hearted people, that inspire the volunteers to maintain that same energy as we serve the women and children. I am very proud to be a volunteer at First Light! Kim Dowe-Kirksey
