Luggage helps kids

Don Pratt, of Lexington, recently delivered several pieces of gentlyused luggage to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services office in Whitesburg. Pratt, who has collected suitcases and duffel bags for 15 years, travels throughout Kentucky giving luggage to agencies that distribute the items to foster or adopted youths, who often carry their belongings to court in garbage bags or boxes. Pratt encourages Letcher County organizations, churches and civic groups to start a luggage collection drive. Donations of luggage can be left on Pratt’s front porch at 210 Walton Avenue in Lexington or call Pratt at (859) 552-2235.
