Elizabethtown, Kentucky-based nonprofit Give 270 made a surprise $1,500 match donation Friday to the Hardin County Farmers’ Market in honor of their Anniversary Celebration. The donation is a match for all the community sponsors who are set to support the June 24th celebration.
“Give 270 is grateful for the economic and health benefits of the Hardin County Farmers’ Market and the outstanding work this organization does to support our agriculture community,” said Kenny Rambo, Give 270 co-founder and board member. “We wanted to further support the volunteers who are dedicated to providing our community with high-quality, locally-sourced food and products.”
The Hardin County Farmers’ Market is celebrating their 46th anniversary on Saturday, June 24 with a public event, which will include a ceremony, giveaways and free cupcakes for all attendees. The event takes place during the regularly-scheduled farmers’ market Saturday hours. The market features several regional vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats, baked goods, jams and jellies and other delicious farm-fresh items.
“We were surprised and honored to receive this donation from Give 270 to support the Hardin County Farmers’ Market,” said Ben Smith, president of the local nonprofit. “These resources will go a long way in helping support our farmers’ market and the growers that make this place possible.”
