Funds earned by the Extension Homemakers through the Jane Gessaman Memorial Fabric Sale are used to give back to this community. This year, the Boyle County Extension Homemakers were able to donate a total of $2,000 across six local organizations which do a variety of outreach in Boyle County. These charitable organizations include Danville-Boyle County Happy Feet, The Glady’s Project, The Shepherd’s House, Boy Scout Troop 27, Forkland Community Center, and Celebrate Recovery. The Boyle County Extension Homemakers would like to thank these organizations for the work they have done and will continue to do.
