Central Kentucky Community Action Council, Inc. (CKCAC) and the Marion County Area Technology Center (MCATC), along with the Family Fellowship Prayer Center have partnered together to provide beds for the children of Marion and Washington Counties. There are many children in both of these counties who are currently sleeping on the floor, and it is no coincidence that these are the children who are showing multiple school performance issues. Therefore, CKCAC needs the help of the community! 

Students at MCATC have volunteered to build the beds, but we are still in need of the supplies. We are looking for donations such as wood, fasteners and bedding for when the beds are completed and delivered to the children.

“There are children without beds. Hard to believe, but true,” said CKCAC Executive Director, Hal B.  Goode. “Ashley and her partners are doing a noble thing by providing what most of us overlook so a child will not have to sleep on the floor. Please support this program, continue to talk about the needs here for these families.”
