With the help of many generous supporters, we continued our mission to reach Appalachian families. Through their gifts, our friends had a profound impact in Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Virginia, Arkansas, Maryland, Alabama, Florida, Ohio, and Mississippi.
For example, 23,998 individuals and children benefited from in-kind donations. And, in Tennessee alone, 12,464 summer meals were served to children through the Lunch Bus program – benefitting about 400 children who received at least one healthy, filling lunch each weekday while school was out for vacation. Children also had the opportunity to attend after-school and summer enrichment camps, adults received vocational training, hundreds of individuals benefited from our home repair and utility assistance program, and hundreds of our nation’s veterans received food support.
This is a just a small sample of our friends’ impact, and we couldn’t have done any of this without their support.
Thank you for all you do.
