Only A Few Calendars Left: 100% of Proceeds Go To Cause
Darren Doyle, story and photos:
There are just a few 2022 Edmonson County Feeding America Backpack Food Program Benefit Calendars left, and the creators and organizers of the annual project are hoping to sell them by the weekend.
The brother and sister duo, Paul Blanton and Michelle McCoy along with other family members and volunteers are usually set up somewhere on the weekends peddling the calendars that have grown hugely popular around the area. The project was started back in 2019 by Blanton, who turned his hobbies of enjoying the outdoors and photography into a fundraiser for the backpack program, that feeds hundreds of Edmonson County kids on the weekends.
100% of the proceeds go toward the program, thanks to the additional sponsors of the program that help cover the costs.
McCoy said there are only about 100 of the calendars left but they will likely go fast. At just $10 each, the calendars feature outdoor photography from Edmonson County and the surrounding areas, all taken by Blanton.
"We can deliver, meet you in Edmonson County, Glasgow, Bowling Green and possibly other locations," McCoy said "We hope we can sell the remaining calendars by the week's end."
