On the eve of Thanksgiving, a group of business owners in Nicholasville have come together to ensure that everyone in their community has something to be thankful for. The initiative was spearheaded by Jacob Warren, who expressed his desire to help those who may not be able to afford basic necessities during these challenging times.
Chris Dedman, another business owner involved in the effort, shared his personal background of growing up with financial struggles and recognized the current hardship faced by many families. Together with Landon Marsh, they came up with a plan to donate 150 turkeys to families in need on Monday night.
Landon was inspired by his family’s tradition of giving back during Christmas and wanted to extend that spirit to Thanksgiving, especially since he had been fortunate enough to have been blessed himself. Carletta Johnson, one of the recipients of the turkeys, expressed her gratitude and emphasized the importance of being grateful for what one has. She also spoke about her own financial struggles and how receiving a turkey would make her Thanksgiving much happier for herself and her family.
The gesture made by these business owners is an example of how even small acts of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s life. As we celebrate this holiday season, let us remember the importance of giving back and helping those in need.
