Central Kentucky Community Foundation this week will be celebrating Community Foundation Week, a celebration of the role organizations play in promoting charitable resources and building stronger communities.

The Central Kentuc­ky Community Foun­dation is one of more than 795 community foundations across America to take part in celebrating the week.

To celebrate, the foundation in Eliza­bethtown, which serves Breck­inridge, Bullitt, Grayson, Har­din, Hart, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson and Washington counties, will lead an effort to give back to the community by working with its partners, said Davette Swiney, president and CEO.

To start the week, the foundation’s representatives will volunteer their time and talents at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Carl M. Brashear Radcliff Veterans Center honoring those who have served the country.

Swiney said they will be doing activities with the residents, their families and those who come in to visit. They also will be taking photographs.

The foundation will continue its service at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at The Lincoln Museum in Hodgenville. Swiney said they will help with holiday decorating.

On Wednesday, the foundation will be at the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Throughout Thurs­day, it will honor its roots in education by providing support to scholarship recipients with care packages.

On Friday, the foundation will join other philanthropic organizations as they collectively celebrate National Philanthropy Day at the annual luncheon in Louisville.
