KCEOC warns of fraudulent holiday solicitations

CORBIN — The holiday season is a time of giving. It is the time of year when many people give annual donations to their favorite charities. It has been estimated that around one-half of charitable gifts are made between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Unfortunately, this generosity presents the opportunity for scammers to falsely solicit donations by using the name of a charity.

KCEOC Community Action Partnership would like to take the opportunity to thank donors who so generously contribute to our Fight Against Poverty, and also wishes to warn citizens to not be fooled by scammers soliciting donations by using KCEOC’s name. While KCEOC Community Action Partnership periodically asks for support from the community to keep anti-poverty initiatives running effectively, all requests will be made from authorized KCEOC staff in accordance to our Fundraising Policy.

Giving is an important part of the season, and it is our hope potential donors will not be discouraged by these scammers. We encourage everyone to stay informed and don’t be afraid to ask questions. KCEOC Community Action Partnership is a 501(c)3 organization and most donations are tax deductible. We have many programs designed to fight the causes of poverty in southeastern Kentucky. If you have any questions or concerns about a request you have received, or if you would like to learn more about giving opportunities, please call KCEOC’s Main Office at 606-546-3152.

Brandy Crase,

Advancement Manager,

KCEOC
