Corbin Rotary Club still needs help raising $25,000 to bring Christmas joy to 501 needy children that are part of struggling families in the area. Those wanting to make tax deductible donations can still do so at any Hometown Bank location, with any Corbin Rotary member or by calling Christina Bentley, 528-7523 or Joe Caldwell, 606-878-7935.Checks should be payable to Southeast Kentucky Empty Stocking Fund.
Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to help with the gift wrapping Thursday, Dec, 20, at First Baptist Church across from the Corbin Post Office beginning at 6 p.m. It will also help greatly if each volunteer would bring an extra roll of wrapping paper, tape and scissors.
Each of the 501 children will receive a wrapped gift Dec. 21 during a party, which will be held at Forest Bowling Lanes in Corbin.
