My kids will talk about this here for days,” said Pamela Ballenger.The Jefferson County Parent Association for foster, adoptive, and kinship care and the Kentucky Foster and Adoptive Parent Network had big bags of gifts for families.“It means a lot because we do a lot for our children but every little bit more, just a little bit more always helps,” Ballenger added. In Chickasaw, hundreds of children turned out for the annual New Day Ministries Bike Extravaganza.“Right now, with the COVID-19, all these kids on NTI, it’s like social distancing, but guess what? Let them know they’re not forgotten. Let them know they’re loved and let them know that, hey, they’re God’s children,” said Todd Moore.In Russell, people lined up one hour early to receive gifts from entertainer C-Tez and the group Gorejus Angels. The demand was so high, they ran out two hours earlier than planned.“I’m very struck, because it goes to show you it’s hard out here right now during this pandemic, and then with everything else going on. There’s a whole lot going on,” Jones said.At Broadway and Brook Street, the restaurant Simple Greek teamed up with the Amazing Children Learning center to give out food and clothing.”I got this nice sweater, some socks, a toboggan, and some hot soup. Which actually helps me out quite a bit cause you know, I’m on disability and cannot really afford a lot of things and I don’t really have any family. This actually helps me with my isolation during the pandemic, too. So it’s really nice to have people that can help,” said William Dalton.On Sunday, the Community Connections Group is holding the last “Feed The People” event of 2020. They’ll have 200 turkeys to give out for families in need.
