Helping Hands of Greenup County will use their grant award to replace an upright freezer that no longer works. The freezer will hold frozen food items for distribution. This will benefit the 300 families who receive food from Helping Hands each month.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Huntington provides a comforting place to stay for families of critically sick or injured children. This project will create a hospitality cart to take to the hospital stocked with toys, puzzles, clothing, blankets, educational/homeschool pieces, hygiene items, and anything else the family might need or want while inpatient to make their stay at the hospital more comfortable. Additionally helpful resources will be provided. It will also serve as a means of communicating with both the families and staff at the hospital so they can learn more about the services RMHC offers and potentially use them or refer them to others.
City of Raceland‘s grant will be used for their City Park Fence project. The Raceland City Park has an open front entrance next to the road on Chinn Street. This has created a safety concern for the children who use the park. The project will place a gated fence in between the park and the road. This will increase the safety and accessibility for the children.
