❄️💨 Baby it’s COLD outside! We’re so thankful for new windows and this generous grant from the Kentucky Colonels . . .
Prodigal Ministries, Inc. is proud to announce it received a grant from the Honorable Order Kentucky Colonels (HOKC) in the amount of $8,675 to purchase replacement windows at their residential homes.
The Prodigal Ministries serves men and women who have been released from prison by meeting their needs physically providing shelter, food, clothing and job assistance; emotionally through counseling with certified drug and alcohol counselors and therapists; and spiritually with weekly Bible Study, discipleship and church affiliation.
The $2 million mark is a record for the KY Colonel’s annual grant program, according to HOKC Executive Director Sherry Crose, as more than 230 charities throughout the Commonwealth will receive grants this year and 3-million Kentuckians will be aided through the combined impact of the non-profit organizations receiving these grants.
Lynn Ashton, Commanding General of the Kentucky Colonels said, “A Kentucky Colonel is more than just a certificate, it’s a group of compassionate people who care about people.”
HOKC is a 501(c)(3) supporting Kentucky charities and worthy organizations through its Good Works Program. Donations are given by Colonels appointed by the Governor, who chose to exercise this honor in a meaningful way. For more information go to Kentucky Colonels.
