2012 Grants Awarded

Thanks to your generosity, the Kentucky Colonels awarded 162 charitable and educational grants last month.  Several of the grants are for feeding and clothing children.  Support was extended to several programs that care for abused children.  Programs providing care and treatment to both mentally and physically challenged children and adults also received grants.  We have a complete listing of the grants under the Good Works tab.

Grants are awarded at a series of “Grant Parties” attended by recepient organizations.  The photo is of “Wilson”.  Wilson is a two year old canine who has been training to become an assistance dog to a child or adult with physical disabilities.  His organization, Paws With Purpose, brought him along to the party and he accepted the award for them.  Needless to say, he was a hit with all attendees.
