9th Annual Legacy Breakfast, Tuesday, November 13
Hand in Hand Ministries hosted its ninth annual Legacy Breakfast this morning, Tuesday, November 13. More than 380 people attended and so far, 27 new families have joined the Legacy Society, making a pledge to support the programs of Hand in Hand for 5 years.
The event featured two speakers. Mauro Lopez, a 14-year-old from Nicaragua traveled to Louisville to personally thank all of Hand in Hand’s supporters for making it possible for him to get a good education and change his life forever. Gail Spradlin, Hand in Hand’s director in Appalachia, recounted her own personal journey and how Hand in Hand changed her life. She also told the story of Kaylan and his grandmother and how Hand in Hand volunteers not only repaired their house, but offered Kaylan a chance to get his GED and find hope for the future.
“For Hand in Hand, this event is an important way for us to connect with those who wish to learn more about our programs,” says Marla Cautilli, Director of Hand in Hand. “It’s also important for us in terms of being able to plan our budget for the next year and beyond. We depend on the donations from this breakfast to fund our poverty alleviation efforts in the areas of education, medical care, and housing in Central America, Appalachia and right here in Louisville.”
