Colonel Harland Sanders’ secret to a well-lived life included giving back to the community and helping community causes.
Kentucky Fried Chicken in Hillsboro and the Highland County Homeless Shelter recently teamed up to hold a Community Fundraising Night on Sept. 12 to help raise monies for the shelter. Guests were given flyers to bring in and give to the cashier, which in turn allowed KFC to donate $400 of the evening’s proceeds to the shelter. The monies will be assist in the daily operations of the shelter.
