Mission of Hope helps 800 families in SE Kentucky

The Mission of Hope made a very special delivery to 800 families in Southeastern Kentucky Friday.

With the holidays just around the corner, the group made a trip to Williamsburg, Kentucky, early in the morning.

"There is a tremendous amount of need in rural areas and that's where we serve," said Mission of Hope Executive Director Emmette Thompson.

The group provided families with free clothes, food and toys.

Sabrina Bennett was one of those recipients. She said the Mission of Hope makes significant impact on the region.

"I have six kids, five boys and one little girl," she said. "So, it's just kind of hard to buy clothes and stuff all the time. Stuff like this helps."

For Keith Decker, Friday's effort was very personal.He is the president of Cedaridge Ministries, out of Williamsburg. Decker spent much of Friday helping men and women who at one time once helped him as a child.

"We can take care of 800 people in one time," he said. "What does that mean to me? It's just like God opening the windows of heaven and throwing out a blessing."
