Last week, Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander, Pennyrile Area Development District Executive Director Chris Sutton and others delivered gifts to seniors at Trigg County Manor.

Sutton said this is part of PADD’s annual Forgotten Angels program. “Every Christmas, we have folks from all around the nine-county Pennyrile Region donate gifts, personal hygiene gifts, blankets, snacks, etc., for those residents of our personal care homes,” he said. “We have several personal care homes in the Pennyrile.”

This year, 315 gifts have been delivered, up from 300 last year, said Sutton, who added that this project was started about 10 years ago and has been growing every since. Alexander is on the PADD board, so he was asked to help deliver gifts to seniors in Trigg County.

PADD bills itself as the “statutory regional planning and development organization” for the Pennyrile Region, which includes Caldwell, Christian, Crittenden, Hopkins, Livingston, Lyon, Muhlenberg, Todd and Trigg Counties.
