KENTUCKY GOOD DAY PROJECT 2020
The Kentucky GVBACK Tuesday 2020, organized by the Superintendents of Augusta Independent School District, Robertson County Schools, and Frankfort Independent Schools are giving back an hour to mobilize one of the coolest student-led education community support projects in the country.
On Saturday, May 30, 2020, student-led teams will engage in multiple community service projects to benefit the communities of Augusta, Mt. Olivet and Frankfort, Kentucky. Our teams will volunteer time to help our local churches, nursing homes, food banks, civic organizations, non-profit groups and city officials for causes that will benefit our residents and local communities.
The Kentucky Good Day Project invites our communities to volunteer 1-hour for our local efforts. The student-led teams will engage in spring community clean-ups, provide free yardwork to elderly, shut-ins, handicap, and low-income residents, assist churches with stocking food banks and deliver care packages to nursing homes to name a few. The day will end with a curb-side pick-up of Kentucky BBQ for our volunteers and live broadcasts of the special event. [SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL BE OBSERVED AT ALL TIMES]
The Kentucky Good Day 2020 Project kick-offs a $1M fundraising campaign to provide funding for school districts across Kentucky to support students during this unprecedented time of COVID-19 when they need us more than ever. Augusta Independent, Robertson County Schools and Frankfort Independent will each receive $250K and the additional $250K will be payed forward to benefit more school districts and students across Kentucky.
