Renovations to create rooms for our Adult Training Program began in September of 2018, with plans for completion in February 2019. The final construction inspection by East Earl Township occurred in January. If you stopped by Lighthouse now, you would see rooms freshly painted in cheery colors and new offices awaiting carpet installation.
Lighthouse is still in need of donations of items for the rooms, or monetary gifts specifically to purchase these items. If you are interested in blessing Lighthouse as we develop this new program, you can purchase items on www.target.com or www.walmart.com by going to the registries and looking up Lighthouse Vocational Services. Monetary gifts can be made directly to Lighthouse and designated in the memo line: ATP rooms. We are currently 1/4 of the way to having the supplies needed to start the educational programming in the Adult Training facility.
We are also looking for volunteers to teach art, music, Bible lessons, exercise, cooking, or baking. The new program is not limited to these skills, and we are excited to explore this opportunity to teach new skills. We would also like to teach photography, sewing, scrap booking, jewelry making and much, much more. Please share your ideas and interests, if you would like to teach. If you are interested in volunteering your time and have a talent that you would like to share please contact Jen Swanson at 1-717-354-0355 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
