HOPKINS COUNTY, KY —For over four decades, the Pennyrile Allied Community Services-Hopkins County Assistance Center (PACS-HCACin Hopkins County, KY has helped to clothe thousands of underprivileged teens in our area through their annual Teen Shopping Program.

In fact, many residents within Hopkins County and the surrounding region, as well as some former residents living out-of-state, give generous contributions to the holiday program each year. However, 2011 marks the first time a local non-profit motorcycle group has pitched in.

Officially declared as an International Masonic Riding Association, the Widows Sons motorcycle crew is a non-profit organization that reaches out to support the community in a variety of ways,

and, this year, the local chapter decided to help out with the PACS-HCAC’s Teen Shopping Program by holding a special “Bucket Shake” fundraiser near downtown Nortonville, KY on November 25th.

In total, the Widows Sons were able to collect a total of four-hundred dollars during the event and donated fifty-percent of the net proceeds to the PACS-HCAC yesterday, November 29th, in support of the annual holiday benefit. What’s more, the Widows Sons explained to members of the PACS-HCAC that they would be interested in helping out again in 2012.

With the voluntary help of the Widows Sons, support from area citizens, and gifts from past donors, PACS-HCAC Director Bobbi Wilcox says that the program is approximately three-thousand dollars away from hitting the final goal of twenty-thousand dollars for 2011.

“We are so grateful for the Widow Sons’ support of the program,” says Wilcox. “Their donation, along with others, has put the Teen Shopping Program ahead of schedule, so to speak. We’ve never been this close to our total goal this early on. With that in mind, I’m confident that we’ll reach or exceed our goal by the donation deadline of December 16th.”
