    Hopes are that this Saturday’s Hearts To Help food pantry benefit becomes an annual event.
    “I would love to see this become an annual fundraiser for the food pantry,” said event organizer Gail Godsey. “Christmas is a time of giving, and what better way to launch the Christmas season than giving to our neighbors?”

    Godsey contacted Taylor County Food Pantry volunteer Marietta Moyers in August after reading a Central Kentucky News-Journal article about costs being up, while donations were down at the food pantry.
