Kids at Lighthouse Will Stay Healthy and Fit, Thanks to Donation

The kids at The Lighthouse Program will soon have more ways to have outdoor fun, thanks to a donation from a local church. Wilmington Friends Meeting has generously donated $500 toward the purchase of toys for BCI’s residential program.

We’ll be using these funds to buy toys that will keep the kids physically active outdoors, such as roller skates, jump ropes, tricycles, and games like volleyball and horseshoes. They’ll also be able to play indoors, with new accessories for our Nintendo Wii Fit system that promote a healthy lifestyle. Exercise and recreation are important for the kids at Lighthouse as they rebuild their family life and their bonds with their moms outside of the drug-using lifestyle. Thank you, Wilmington Friends Meeting! We really appreciate this gift.

The Lighthouse Program, located in Ellendale, Delaware, is the only non-profit residential substance abuse treatment facility in Delaware that permits mothers to bring their children with them. If you’d like to support Lighthouse, you can view our wish list here or donate online.
