Due to circumstance beyond our control, Lights for Life is sad to announce the cancellation of our annual String Light Recycle Campaign. But we must move on and think of all the families that we were able to reach out to. Thank you to all that supported us in the past and we wish all of you health and happiness.

We help kids with cancer by recycling old and broken holiday string lights. How can old holiday string lights help kids with cancer? Holiday string lights contain copper, a valuable commodity. We collect the string lights (and other items that contain copper) and sell them to a recycling company. We then donate the proceeds directly to a family who has a child with cancer. It’s that easy! And it’s good for the environment! Keep valuable commodities out of landfills, and help kids with cancer! It’s a win-win situation!

How can I help?

You can help kids with cancer by donating your old, broken string lights to Lights For Life. Clean out that garage and find what else can be recycled. We’ll take care of the rest.

Where can the lights be donated

What if I don’t have holiday string lights... can I still help?

Yes! Of course you can still help! As a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit,
Cash donations and grants are always accepted and greatly appreciated.
You could also help us spread the word by joining the Lights for Life Street Team.

What if I know of a family that has a child with cancer?

We would love to help. Please have them email us at [email protected].
