Circle of Love Offers Opportunity to Help Those in Need

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 5, 2017) – The holiday season is quickly approaching and for the 31st year, the University of Kentucky community is preparing for the annual Circle of Love, an event that provides UK employees and students the opportunity to fulfill the wishes of hundreds of children in need from 10 Kentucky counties.

Thanks to the generosity, compassion, and teamwork of UK HealthCare employees, volunteers and students all Circle of Love children have been sponsored for 2017. At 8 a.m., Friday, Dec. 8 a troop of UK HealthCare Circle of Love committee members will help Santa Claus load school buses and vans with gifts for hundreds of local children and families needing assistance during the holiday season.

Circle of Love is organized by UK Volunteer Services and UK Hospital Auxiliary. For further information, contact Katie Tibbitts, manager of Volunteer Services at 859-323-6023.
