 The United Way of Central Kentucky renewed its commitment to its mission of connecting the community for the common good by investing $364,000 in eight local agencies that serve LaRue County through programs and services in education, financial stability, health and basic needs. 

“Our donors and volunteers play such an influential role in the work that we do,” said Christopher Wilborn, Executive Director of the United Way of Central Kentucky. “Through their support, and by contributing to our record-breaking campaign, they enabled the United Way to continue making investments that will impact the lives of residents in our community.” 

Through its Community Investment Team, United Way brought together representatives from its five county service area to review grant applications from local agencies dedicated to improving the lives of people in need. Recipients of investment awards include the American Red Cross ($45,000), Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana ($50,000), Central Kentucky Community Action ($30,000), Community Health Clinic of Hardin and LaRue Counties ($80,000), Feeding America ($70,000), LaRue County Schools ($20,000), SpringHaven Inc. ($60,000), and MCPC Shepherd’s Pie Food Pantry ($9,000), the newest funded program. 

These awards comprise a portion of United Way’s total investments, which also include agencies serving Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, and Meade County. The investment awards demonstrate the United Way’s commitment to agencies and programs that excel in providing quality services with measurable results in the organization’s four key focus areas.

The United Way of Central Kentucky is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. The organization serves Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, LaRue, and Meade County and provides funding for 20 local agencies and programs.
