A New Initiative: Hope in the Mountains Launches Blue Jeans Day Program

Soul Food, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting childhood hunger in Eastern Kentucky, has found a loyal partner in Hope in the Mountains. The director of Hope in the Mountains, Renee McCoy, who also serves on the Soul Food board, has been instrumental in providing volunteers from her addiction recovery program to support Soul Food's mission.


A Generous Donation

In a generous show of support, Peoples Bank made a significant donation towards the 2023-2024 school year. This donation was made possible through the bank's Blue Jeans program, where employees have the option to dress casually on Fridays in exchange for a $5 donation.


Inspired by the success of this initiative, Renee McCoy decided to adopt the Blue Jeans program for Hope in the Mountains. The goal was to not only raise funds but also to make a local impact by providing proceeds from the program to other non-profit organizations in the community.


Making a Difference

The first community donation through the Blue Jeans program was directed towards Soul Food. This gesture of support has been deeply appreciated by Soul Food, as they continue their relentless effort to combat childhood hunger in Eastern Kentucky. The partnership between Hope in the Mountains and Soul Food has proven to be a powerful force for good in the community.


"We are truly grateful for the support of Hope in the Mountains and their commitment to fighting childhood hunger," said Jerry Kroll a representative from Soul Food. "Their generosity and dedication to making a difference in the lives of children in our community is truly remarkable."

Hope in the Mountains has always been committed to making a positive impact in Eastern Kentucky. Through their addiction recovery program and various community initiatives, they have demonstrated a deep sense of compassion and service towards those in need.
