Kentucky River Foothills Development Council benefits from donations from Amazon


The Amazon fulfillment center in Lexington recently donated nearly 100 boxes of food, personal hygiene products and kitchen wares to the Kentucky River Foothills Development Council.

The local non-profit group offers education services, health services, housing, supportive services for veteran families and senior services to name a few of its many offerings.

The contribution provided baby and children’s items for the Head Start and Community Collaborations for Children programs; snacks and treats for the Youth Investment Program; cleaning supplies and toiletries for homeless veterans; motor oil for transportation programs; and general office supplies for the Kentucky River Foothills Development Council’s main building.

“Were we ever surprised when we opened box after box of items that appeared to have been hand-picked for our programs,” the Kentucky River Foothills Development Council development staff expressed in a statement. “We felt like it was Christmas!”

The donation is part of Amazon’s ongoing commitment to give back in local communities where its associates live and work.

Amazon has two locations in the Lexington area with more than 2,000 full-time employees, and is currently hiring for great jobs.
