Yudichak Family Lighthouse Fund

The Yudichak Family Lighthouse Fund was established in 2012 in honor of John’s parents, Joe and Sally Yudichak to support public libraries and area youth programs in Northeastern Pennsylvania. A graduate of Greater Nanticoke Area High School, Wyoming Seminary Preparatory School and an English major at Penn State University, John knew of the importance of libraries and keeping our youth engaged in learning and athletic activities.

After establishing the Lighthouse Fund and with the help of the Luzerne Foundation, the Yudichak family has consistently supported those doing good works in Northeastern Pennsylvania. In its 10 years of existence, the Lighthouse Fund has provided over $150,000 in grants to our local libraries and area non-profits such as the United Way, Dinners for Kids,Children’s Service Center and the Wyoming Valley Challenger Division Little League, just to name a few.
