Supporting the Tri-County Empty Stocking Fund

 

On December 3, 2014, the Harlan County Farm Bureau Board of Directors donated a check in the amount of $1000 to the Tri-City Empty Stocking Fund. Ineda Howard, board member, presented the check to Jim “Muggins” Bennett at the Annual Auction held on the Cumberland campus of Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College. The Empty Stocking Fund provides large quantities of food for families in the Tri-City areas of Cumberland, Benham and Lynch Kentucky.
