Generations Adult Day Services Receives Grant
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD - Generations Adult Day Services is proud to announce it received a grant from the Honorable Order Kentucky Colonels (HOKC) in the amount of $3,643 to purchase power lift couches and power lift chairs.

Generations serves older adults and person with disabilities by being a source of light for families who are living with challenging illnesses or disabilities; serving them with dignity and love by providing socialization, activity and encouragement throughout the day.

HOKC will award $2.1 million in grants supporting 265 non-profits, impacting more than 3.9 million Kentuckians. 

This year’s total is a record for HOKC’s Good Works Program and represents HOKC reaching the $50-million mark since the Colonels became a 501(c)3 in 1951. Grants are made possible through donations from active Kentucky Colonels from around the world who chose to exercise this honor in a meaningful way.

HOKC Commanding General Lynn Ashton said: “We cast a wide net across the Commonwealth and across the scope of those in need from aiding the abused, to assisting the handicapped, to supporting crisis relief to historic preservation. Our goal is to annually grant $5-mlllion to worthy causes. All funding is generated through donations from active Colonels ranging from $1 to major gifts, so to get to that dollar amount we must reach Colonels not engaged with us.”
