Local company helps children in need

SCOTTSVILLE Ky.- A local extermination company is giving back to kids who need an extra helping hand.

Guarantee Pest Control and its sister company, Blankenship and Sons, are holding what is being called, the Be the Change Bag initiative.

The goal is to fill up bags with donated items like stuffed animals and blankets.

The contents of the bags will be given to children who are going through difficult times.

The secretary of Blankenship and Sons, Ashley Pardue, said she loves the fact that awareness is being brought to this cause.

“It’s exciting to know that people want to make that change in a child’s life. It’s almost like a chain reaction. I get emotional thinking about what it’s going to mean for these children to have something of their own,” Pardue said.

Items can be donated up until Thanksgiving at their offices at either 860 Lain Avenue in Bowling Green, or 425 Jenner Road.
