Helping families in need comes in many forms.  Sensei Tim Hurt, Abidah Bryant, Crystal Bryant, and Hannah Wells of the Lawrenceburg Martial Arts on Woodford St is continuing the Basket Project which has a goal to provide local families in need with holiday meals and toys for the children.  The project, which has its roots with Grandmaster John Mason who created the project to provide holiday meals for families until his passing in 2012, was officially reborn last year where they were able to provide 9 families with meals and Christmas gifts.  This year, they are wanting to expand and help 20 families and even cook for the elderly on Thanksgiving.

To help fund the meals, they will be having a special self defense class on September 19th at 10am.  The class specializes in ways to protect oneself in real life situations.  They are accepting $10 or more donations for the class.  For those who want to give directly, they will have a donation box to accept non-perishable food items, including cans of green beans, corn, carrots, mac and cheese, instant potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and brownie/cake mixes.  They’re also accepting toys to give out to children during the holidays.

The names of the families that the Basket Project will be helping are provided by Bluegrass Community Action Partnership and the Senior Citizen Center.  We wish them much luck to help as many families as possible.

For more information on the project, the class, or to donate directly, please visit their Facebook page or GoFundMe page.
