  • United Way gives reasons to be thankful


    As many sit around the dinner table today, passing around turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy and pumpkin pie, others are thankful just to have basic necessities: a warm, safe place to sleep, clothes to wear, a job, transportation and food for one more day.

    This Thanksgiving, some Hardin County residents are giving thanks for the services they’ve received from agencies funded in part by United Way of Central Kentucky.
