Giving time for others

A community gathers to wrap gifts for the Empty Stocking Fund

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

Wrapping paper, scissors, Scotch Tape, bows, ribbons and boxes — along with hundreds of gifts — found their way to Corbin High School on Thursday night. So did lots of volunteers, as the annual gift-wrapping for the 26th Annual Southeast Kentucky Empty Stocking Fund. 

This year’s goal is to serve more than 500 children, and to raise $38,000 to buy the gifts. The annual party for the families and children who were selected to participate will be today (Friday) at Forest Bowling Lanes.

The Southeast Kentucky Empty Stocking Fund is a collaboration between the Corbin Rotary Club and The Times-Tribune.

In the photo, Rev. John Burkhart and his wife, Milly were among the many who showed up at the school and helped wrap presents. During the evening Joe Caldwell, president of the Southeast Kentucky Empty Stocking Fund and and past district governor of Rotary International accepted a check for $350 from Julia Rollins, with the Corbin Area Technology Center HOSA Future Health Professionals, and Brendi Scradley, Chapter President and Kentucky HOSA Secretary for the Corbin Area Technology Center.
