Community Volunteering



community volunteering

As an intern for kNOwMORE Nonprofits, I thought it would be GREAT to become more involved by community volunteering. With the holidays near, there’s no better way to celebrate than food and cheer. Which is exactly what was accomplished at Lexington Rescue Mission this past Wednesday as I helped serve meals with fellow University of Kentucky students. Lexington Rescue Mission provides food and clothing as well as financial, and career services. They also help people with utility assistance, bus passes, job training, and transitioning from halfway houses.

I helped serve an array of foods for lunch including chicken noodle soup, green beans, fresh salad, and bread with a delicious slice of chocolate, vanilla, or red velvet cake. After lunch was served, everyone was allowed to pick up a free bag of bread and home grown sweet potatoes, the largest I have ever seen!

One of the most important things I noticed while volunteering at Lexington Rescue Mission, was the welcoming spirit and family vibe. Each worker and volunteer gladly welcomed me with open arms. As I was serving meals, I watched as Donna Junker, a Lexington Rescue Mission worker, interact with members of the community. They were reading, laughing, sharing opinions, and truly enjoying each other’s company. “People know that they have a place where other people care about them.” say Junker. I spoke with Charlie Brooker, a visually impaired regular at Lexington Rescue Mission, he mentioned that all he does every day is “Eat and bug Donna!” He definitely kept us laughing throughout my entire visit.
To anyone looking for a warming and welcoming Nonprofit for the holidays, Lexington Rescue Mission should definitely be at the top of your VOLUNTEER LIST!

Nonprofits & Disabilities

May 2016

One of our new shows for this fall will feature three nonprofits helping those with disabilities, Radio Eye Lexington, the Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies, and a unique children’s Playhouse program in Louisville.

Radio Eye is a volunteer driven organization that helps people without the ability to read, regain some independence from their everyday challenges. The radio-station style studio setup located in a Library broadcasts readings from local newspapers, health tips, and even reads the grocery ads and coupons!

The Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies in Louisville, KY is an institution that serves children who suffer from disabilities that may affect everyday tasks. Through speech, occupational, and physical therapies, this nonprofit helps children achieve their full potential while coping with their disability.

The children’s Playhouse program gives kids a fun playhouse that is constructed based on their wishes, as well as their disabilities. All three nonprofits are always looking for people to get involved whether a volunteer reader at Radio Eye, construction expertise for a playhouse or simply taking a tour of the Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies.

Just spread the word about these amazing organizations and be sure and stay tuned for air dates of this new this episode made possible by Kosair Charities.
