Call to Action 2017 – Impacts and Beneficiaries

WE Day Community: Kentucky 2017 was a great success! With over 2,400 participants and 50+ community organizations, it was an incredible 5th year.

The call to action for 2017 was that of “WE Care Kits”, a kit of personal hygiene items, including shampoo, toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, feminine hygiene products, and much more. In partnership with Heine Brothers, WLKY, Highland Cleaners, and Colgate, WE Day Community: Kentucky 2017 collected over 65,000 personal care items!

These items were distributed to several organizations to serve communities throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The benefitting organizations include Hand-in-Hand Ministries, Kentucky Refugee Ministries, The International Center of Kentucky in Owensboro, and over 25 Jefferson County Public School Family Resource Centers.

We are thankful to our participants and partners for making this year’s call to action our best yet. We look forward to making an even greater impact at WE Day Community: Kentucky 2018!
