The Good People Fund Helping EKY

Those in McRoberts receiving the help say it's a blessing. People living here got a new deck.

"Something I wasn't able to do. Just thank God that they come out and done it. They done a great job and just really appreciate it," said Roger Bentley of McRoberts.

Other people's homes got a new paint job.

"I feel closer to God knowing that there is people out there that will help other people," said Virginia Isaac, also of McRoberts.

A group primarily from Pennsylvania and New Jersey has spent two days helping those in the community that need a little extra help around the house.

"Coming from New Jersey, it was a bit of a culture shock. And I went back home and I said, why are people not aware of what's happening in this part of the country," said Naomi Eisenberger, Executive Director for the Good People Fund.

Eisenberger has been to McRoberts once before representing the non-profit Good People Fund, and decided to make a return trip, bringing even more help.

"It's different coming from a city to see what's here in rural Kentucky. But the people have been gracious beyond gracious, and that's all I could ever ask," said volunteer Beth Adlend.

A trailer full of food was also brought in for those in need in the community.
