2022 Lighthouse Academy at Newburgh Health & Back to School Fair

posted on September 12


The Lighthouse Academy at Newburg at 5312 Shepherdsville Road in Louisville, a Heartland district community ministry, had another successful Health and Back to School Fair on Saturday, August 6.  We were able to provide free back to school physicals and give out free backpacks full of school supplies to get many students ready for the new school year. Many vendors provided information to their parents. The Lighthouse Academy appreciates the support of many district churches that provide volunteers and supplies. Here are some facts from the 2022 Fair.

  • 1004 total registered
  • 770 backpacks with school supplies distributed
  • 700 free lunches given out by the JCPS Bus Cafe
  • 120 free vision screenings
  • 73 free school and sports physicals from volunteer doctors and nurse practitioners
  • 55 volunteers from partnering churches and Jefferson County Schools

Thanks again for the support we receive to help us serve many students and their families.
