LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Christmas arrived early at the Portland Neighborhood House thanks to a fulfilled community commitment to give back to neighbors, and strangers, in need.
"Today, we're bringing in all the gifts that have come from all over the state," said Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator Tony Lindauer who personally selected the Portland Neighborhood House as the PVA's 2013 charity project.
Throughout the Commonwealth, members of the Property Valuation Administration teamed together to provide the agency an assortment of gifts ranging from wrapping paper to gift cards and crafts.
"I grew up here," began Lindauer, "It's a place that's very dear to my heart and that's why I wanted to support it."
However, the support did not stop with the gifts. The PVA also presented the Portland Neighborhood House with a check worth more than $1,300.
"We're just thrilled," said Portland Neighborhood House Associate Executive Director Kelly Garvey.
Garvey said the center operates a child development center, a youth program and a senior citizen's program in addition to offering family services including a food bank.
"We're really here just to help families in any way possible," said Garvey.
Members of the PVA hope by giving to the Portland Neighborhood House others will be encouraged to give outside of their circles this holiday season, as well.
