COMMUNITY NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS:
 
The "Angel Trees" have come to McCreary County, to help locally in need kids have a brighter Christmas. Angel trees are located at Kroger in Whitley City and at the Whistle Stop Restaurant, in the train depot, in Stearns. Simply take a name from the tree, purchase a gift for the child, and return to that location on or before December 14th, so the item can be given to the child in the local community. This is a great way to give back this holiday season.

"Drop Your Drawers" is also underway collecting packages of new kids underwear for those in need.

Items will be distributed to local children in need before the holidays.
Champions/UNITE is joining with the Appalachian High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area to offer "Give Me A Reason". This project offers free home drug testing kits for parents to test their children so kids can tell peers they can't use drugs because they get tested.
