Charity Needs Help with Christmas Postage
Paducah, KY – A Paducah charity that sends care packages to soldiers overseas is running into a popularity problem. When the Hugs Project of Western Kentucky started, it was sending a handful of packages to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. This year, they've stocked 1,000 boxes that must go out by the end of Thanksgiving week. Volunteers say this year the response has been overwhelming. The only problem now is how to get the care packages out. President Gayron Ferguson says the packages could cost up to $11,000 to send, and he's hoping some donations come in soon to help post the packages.
The address is: Hugs Project of Western Kentucky, 4931 Epperson Road, Paducah, KY 42001.
