Borden community pitches in to help those in need PDF Print E-mail

An annual Holiday tradition is the Borden Community Christmas Program.


The event not only provides food baskets for those in need, but also provides treats for children and fruit for the widows and widowers in the community.

This year 15 families were assisted by receiving food baskets and more than 70 widows and widowers received fruit.

More than 100 kids got treats thanks to the programs.

Volunteers gathered on the morning of Saturday, December 23to get things ready to be delivered.

Those who make the event possible include Al’s Woodcraft, America’s Window, First Baptist Church, Borden Buckboard Diner, Borden Church of Christ, Borden Community Church, Borden Lions Club, Borden Schools, Daisy Hill United Methodist Church, First Christian Church, Great American Satellite, Hometown Express, Huber’s Orchard, Winery and Vineyards, Hughes-Taylor Funeral Home, My Cup Runneth Over, New Washington State Bank, Pleasant View United Methodist Church, Rutherford and Rutherford Accounting, Sandy’s Custom Cakes, Vivian’s Sheer Magic, Wood Township Fire Department, Wright Brothers Implement Sales, Tony Griffin Trucking and Kentuckiana Trading.

Organizers say many of the names for food baskets come from the schools and the program is put on by the work of many.

On December 23 around 30 people showed up to volunteer.
