Sometimes families in the Bluegrass need an extra helping hand during the holidays, and 2020 is no exception. While United Way of the Bluegrass helps to fight for the basic needs, education and financial stability of every person in Central Kentucky each day of the year, we enjoy the opportunity to make the holidays a little sweeter for kids by providing them with a gift. Thanks to you, the Sweet Dreams Project provided a cozy blanket, a book, and a reusable face mask and water bottle this year.
The Scott County Family Resource Youth Services Center have received Sweet Dreams gifts for their students for the past 5 years, and have selected students to receive the gifts based on need. “I know this gift makes a difference and makes Christmas a little brighter for our students,” said Torie Hundley, the Family Resource Youth Services Center Coordinator in Scott County.
Thanks to your support, the holiday season was made just a little sweeter for students across the Bluegrass. Your support helped achieve the following results:
“Sweet Dreams is definitely one of my favorite projects each year for students. I look forward to giving these gifts to families. As a child, one of my favorite memories was opening pajamas and books on Christmas Eve, and I love creating this memory for my students and hope they find the joy in the same gift, too.”
