Anonymous donor gives house to local non-profit organization

By  | 

HARLAN COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - #WithLoveFromHarlan is a non-profit organization that provides supplies for those in need locally and even nationally.

The community has rallied behind them for about two years now and one anonymous donor gave the organization a place to work.

"It will benefit having a physical location because at least people will be able to come and meet with us and see who we are," said Ashley Bledsoe a member of #WithLoveFromHarlan.

Bledsoe said this building will also serve as a home for those in need, "a bedroom with some beds, a living room with a couch, a TV. Something to be able to give them a little taste of home while they've endured some kind of tragedy is very important."

And within a week time frame, #WithLoveFromHarlan received another donation: a van.

"We'll be able to take that family, pick them up, take them here. We'll be able to use that van in a lot of different capacities," said Bledsoe.

Now volunteers are knocking on the doors, eager to fix up the house.

We've already had so many people reach out to us wanting to help with the building because they know we're doing great things. We're very excited, we're very excited," said Bledsoe.

Members of the organization say they are so thankful for this community, "no one gets paid, the community sees the work that we do and that it's from our hearts."
