Love & Light was established in 2020 by Shantel Rocha as an effort to help promote small businesses struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The online gift shop offers products with uplifting messages reflective of the company's mission including drinkware, accessories, candles, clothing, and home d├ęcor. All products are created in collaboration with local vendors and artisans, and can be purchased directly through Love & Light's website. 

Love & Light also offers memberships into its Roots initiative, a platform created by Shantel to promote other local businesses' products, services, and community involvement. In addition to supporting other businesses, a portion of Roots proceeds goes towards Shantel's non-profit Lights in the Dark Foundation which was created to aid a variety of local causes.
