On Monday night, three business owners from Nicholasville came together to discuss how they could help those in need during the holiday season. Jacob Warren, Chris Dedman, and Landon Marsh were determined to make a difference and decided to buy 150 turkeys to give away to families facing financial difficulties.
Landon was inspired by his family’s tradition of giving during Christmas and wanted to extend that spirit of generosity to Thanksgiving. He knew that many people in the community were struggling, and he wanted to do his part by providing a little extra support.
Chris Dedman spoke about his own personal background of growing up with financial struggles and recognized the importance of helping others during difficult times. He was grateful for the opportunity to give back and make a positive impact on the community.
One person who benefited from their kindness was Carletta Johnson, who admitted she was currently facing financial difficulties. She described being unemployed and waiting on Social Security but said that getting a turkey would help make her Thanksgiving much happier for herself and her family.
Carletta expressed her gratitude for their generosity and emphasized the importance of being grateful for what we have. She also shared that she volunteers at a local homeless shelter and understands the value of giving back to others in need.
