Bull Run Charity joins with JOY Ministries to help in crisis

'... the mission of MusicFest held over the past few summers has focused on raising funds for a 100% local impact and we've made the decision to ensure each act of charity is coupled with a message of Christian love and encouragement...' - EASTON BRYANT
The Bull Run Charity, a local fund collected each summer at the Bull Run Charity MusicFest, has graciously donated money to help run the J.O.Y. Crisis Resource Center for the 2017 year.

This donation, coupled with the dozens of donations received by individual families and businesses in the past month, means that J.O.Y. has reached and surpassed its goal for the Families-for-$5 campaign, designed to solicit support from the community to increase the monthly income of the center by $450.

Jon Halsey: Has never seen littering to the extent it is here

Situation with littering not getting any better, except for fewer beer cans and cartons since alcohol available locally
Comments re article 88000 Comment Grant for environment or more personal responsibility

By Jon Halsey
Personal Commentary

While littering is not unique to this community, I can say that I have lived for extended periods of time in widely diverse geographic areas and I have never seen littering to the extent that exists here. For about 15 years my wife and I have made a practice of cleaning up our little part of paradise and I regret to say that the problem is not getting any better.

  • there was no place to take children for outdoor adventures?
  • there was no place for them to learn about the role agriculture plays in their lives?
We have the place - Homeplace on Green River- but to provide all the above, the place needs help to match a generous grant which will fund continued activities at Homeplace.
