Fern Creek / Highview United Ministries
25 Tons of Food???!!!
The Louisville Metro Council and District 22 Councilman Robin Engel proudly honored the Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries, Zachry Holdings, Inc., LG&E and local Boy Scout Troop 56 and their Scoutmasters Bob Domek and Huston Brown at last night's Council meeting. The ministries received a large donation from Zachry Holdings, Inc., a Texas company in town to work on the LG&E Mill Creek project. Zachry Holdings, Inc. was founded in 1924, and is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. They employ thousands of individuals and perform tens of millions of work hours per year. They stand for "important work done right." Employees from Zachry Holdings collected 23 tons of non-perishable food items and another 2 tons of turkeys, hams, and other meats to donate to the Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries.
Despite the winter storm of ice and snow, the delivery took place last Saturday, December 7, at 8:00 a.m. at the Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries located at 9300 Beulah Church Rd. Local Boy Scout Troop 56 and Scoutmasters Bob Domek and Huston Brown were on hand to volunteer their services in assisting Rev. Ron Loughry, his staff and me with the delivery of this massive amount of food items.
On behalf of our District 22 residents, we thank Zachry Holdings for their mighty act of compassion, along with congratulations to Rev. Ron Loughry and his outstanding staff at the Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries for their leadership and commitment to our community in serving those in need. A very special thanks also goes to our local Boy Scout Troop 56 and their Scoutmasters for braving the cold to participate in this wonderful event. These folks make a difference in the lives of others everyday, but especially during the Holiday Season.

Who We Are
Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries (FCHUM) is a not-for-profit social service agency founded in 1988 by 10 local churches in the Louisville, Kentucky area. A group of representatives from 10 different churches met and made a commitment to move beyond their denominational ties to work together to meet the needs of our community. Today, FCHUM is supported by area churches representing a large cross-section of different denominations working together who help make many significant contributions within the community on a daily basis.

FCHUM Ministries News - Volume 16 Issue 1 - Winter/Spring 2014 - June 2014 will mark the end of our 25th anniversary year. 2013 brought many challenges, but also great blessings. Life is always full of transitions, and now, here at FCHUM we are experiencing a significant staff transition with the retirement of our Administrative Assistant Kathy Crenshaw. Kathy has served FCHUM in roles as bookkeeper and then as administrative assistant and bookkeeper for many years. After retiring from Kroger in 2000, Kathy started as a volunteer at the ADC, then in 2001 served as an activities substitute, and then in 2002 became part-time contract bookkeeper off and on for many years. She has been with us as full time administrative assistant/bookkeeper since May of 2011. We will miss her tremendous efficiency and caring smile. She looks forward to more time with her grandchildren and for traveling, but she lives close and we will be able to call on her to substitute and help when there is a need. Joining our team as the new Administrative Assistant is Lynn Humphrey. Lynn is bringing diverse and rich background and experience to our team.
