2009 Directors report
In 2009 Lighthouse launched a second
Heaventrain Bus in partnership with local
churches. The Blue Bird Bus was donated
by a partner church, and rehabbed by
Busses International. Funding was
provided by the Norther Ohio Golf
Charity. (Bridgestone Invitational)
Our summer lunch program grew from
154 kids a week to 2079 a week. We fed
more kids the very best food we could
ﬁnd. Included a partnership with Chik Fil
a for Heaventrain. This program was so
successful that the State of Ohio and US
senate are looking to extend the
opportunity. We are now a model for
children’s hunger reform. Awarded the
Gov’s award for “Call to Action”.
