As most everyone in Logan County knows, the Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class of 2012 Alumni has chosen the Logan County Family Resource/Youth Service Centers in all of the schools in Logan County as their class project. The class began working on their project in the spring of this year and have currently raised a total of $8,037 toward their goal of $10,000. To date, the project has helped with the Youth Action Team of Logan County in the back to school bash, provided lunches for the Lewisburg intercession and also provided money to send a child to go to 4H Camp that would have not been able to go if the donation wasn’t made.
As the holidays approach us, the Leadership Logan alumni class would like to ask for any more donations that anyone would be willing to give. The funds will be used to provide gifts and necessities for our Logan County youth in need. We are $1,963 away from meeting our $10,000 goal and we would love to see that goal met, as well as be able to provide more necessities and gifts for our youth in need for Christmas. If anyone wants to make a donation, please take it by First Southern Bank on the square in Russellville and give it to Donna Edwards or mail it to First Southern Bank, 138 North Main Street, Russellville, KY 42276. Make checks payable to Leadership Logan Class of 2012 Project.
As we all know, the season of giving is approaching and we can’t think of any better way to give than to help a child. The money will be evenly dispersed between the 8 schools including: Adairville, Auburn, Chandlers, Lewisburg, Logan County High School, Olmstead, Russellville High School and Stevenson. “There are needs in every school in Logan County and we want to do all we can to provide as many of their needs as possible”, says Jana Hanks, class president.
Should you have any questions, please contact the class president, Jana Hanks at 725-7091. We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts that have been so gracious in giving and can assure you that your money is going for a very good cause. Afterall, our youth is the future of Logan County and it is our responsibility to see that needs are met for children in need. “When our class listened to the family resource directors in each school share the needs of students, it really touched our hearts that there are so many things that students do not have and would not have if it were not for the resource centers in our schools. It has been heart-warming to see the donations that have came in and we hope to make this holiday season a blessing for the children in need. One thing for sure is that Logan County citizens come together when there are needs to be met and I personally hope that we can not only meet our goal of $10,000 but exceed it and be able to do more and more. The generosity of Logan County sure makes me thankful that I am a part of this community”, says Jana.
