On Monday (June 28, 2021), the Eagle Child and Family Development Center hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of their new food pantry. With approximately 1,000 square feet, the pantry will greatly benefit the community. The Center is expanding rapidly with future plans to double the size of the pantry, current construction of new shower facilities and the addition of a relaxation room to aid mission teams who visit regularly to help with home renovation projects throughout the community. The Center provides a variety of services to the Eagle community including counseling and educational services. The Center also provides assistance to the elderly. Those attending the ceremony included Eagle Child and Family Development Center Manager Joe Beaudoin, Christian Appalachian Project Director Mike Loiacono, McCreary County Judge Executive Bevo Greene, and local volunteers (red t-shirts.) The Center is part of the Christian Appalachian Project organization whose mission consists of building hope, transforming lives, and sharing Christ’s love through service in Appalachia.
