ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. – Give 270, a local nonprofit, has announced a crowdfunding effort for the Kimble Family who lost both parents within days of each other from COVID-19.
The Hardin County community was recently heartbroken by the news that husband and wife Dr. TJ and Liz Kimble had passed away after battling the COVID-19 virus. Described as kindhearted and family-focused, the Kimbles were well-known in Hardin County and the special needs community for starting a non-profit called Joshua’s Friends, which was named after their son Joshua Kimble who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome.
Friends of the Kimble’s established an account at Wilson & Muir Bank to provide for funeral expenses and financial support to the family.
Give 270, a local 501(c)(3) crowdfunding organization that raises money to benefit projects and organizations in Hardin, LaRue and Meade counties, has established a webpage and online donation option for the community to contribute to the account. Donations can be made at give270.org.
Give 270 is passionate about supporting needs throughout the local communities, said its co-founder Kenny Rambo.
“Our community naturally wants to rally around this family, and Give 270 is pleased to provide the connection between local donors and benefactors to facilitate that,” Rambo said. “Hardin County, again and again, proves itself to be a community that truly helps each other in times of need.”
