For the people in our community who are already struggling with hunger, the holidays can be a hardship. Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland, is working to make the holiday season a little brighter for our hungry neighbors. You can help keep the local food pantry stocked. When you see the Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland envelope in your mailbox, remember to mail it back with your donation today – a hungry neighbor will thank you! Go to www.fakh.org for more information.

The soldiers of the 3/1 begin returning from Afghanistan later this month. This means quite a few “geographical bachelors” will be among that group, and they have some basic needs that are not going to be supplied by the Army. Most urgently is a need for about 225 twin sheet sets including a pillow case. Both sheets need to be flat (not fitted). Additionally there is a need for small laundry soap or pods, small personal hygiene items such as soap, toothpaste, shaving cream and disposable razors. Snacks and bottled water would be an added plus. These soldiers will stay here for a few weeks before their leave, or reassignment, or exiting of the military. These requested items will tide them over until they can access their personal items from storage. Bring donated supplies to the Radcliff branch of the HCCC where the Red Cross will pick them up as they accumulate.
There’s more than one place to look for help if you or someone you know is depressed or contemplating suicide. Don’t be afraid to get help.
