In 2005, Matt and Amy Tackett organized the first Climbers That Care event to help provide food and clothing to needy families in the Red River Gorge area. The focus of this year’s Climbers That Care event was a food drive benefitting the Lee County, Kentucky Helping Hands Food Bank. The food bank feeds an average of 1,000 people on a monthly basis. With the help of Climb NuLu in Louisville, Kentucky – Climb Time in Cincinnati, Ohio – RockQuest in Cincinnati, Ohio – and Daniel Boone Trading Post in Slade, Kentucky, enough non-perishable food items were collected to fill the cargo area of Subaru Outback. A total of $400 was also collected for the purchase of holiday hams and turkeys. Big thanks go to Rob Moore, Matt Seto, Patty Law, Valerie McDonough, Nancy Hamann, Nick Summe, and Ana Noll for their help in making this a successful event!
