March 30, 2018 on WKBN "First News" - story "Former drug addict finds success through East Liverpool program" where Glen McMillin, Jr. talks about battling drug addiction for 17 years.

Vice President Josh Lytle said his dad, founder and executive director Donny Lytle, wasn't too surprised but was, as always, grateful to accept any donation. That lack of surprise quickly changed, however, when his dad learned what the donor wanted to give their ministry. "It was her house!" he said with a laugh. "People give us washers and dryers.
