Governor comes to Madison County for dedication of God’s Outreach

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and unveiling of the new God’s Outreach warehouse was held this morning Friday September 22, 2023, at the new facility on Four Mile Road. Colleen Spencer, the President of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, introduced Mayor Robert Blythe, Anthony Lowery, Judge Reagan Taylor, and Governor Andy Beshear to the podium.

Mayor Blythe and Judge Taylor both thanked Anthony Lowery for his dedication and his family’s devotion to feeding the hungry children and residents of Madison and Estill County. Their new warehouse will distribute food to Madison, Estill, Jackson, and Lee counties. Judge Taylor reminded the crowd “where there is a good man, there is a better woman behind him” like Anthony’s wife, Linda.

Executive Director Anthony Lowery graciously thanked everyone for their attendance. Lowery stated God’s Outreach distributes 150 pounds of food each month and over $4 million of food each year. The Executive Director personally thanked Grants Excavation, Allen Grant, Ed Chenault with Fox Enterprises, Jason Stewart with Stewart Construction, Ed Worley for his last-minute help, Brooks Wooten for donating the lighting and wiring at no charge, Save The Children, the Allen Company, and Judge Reagan Taylor for his assistance with the $1 million grant from the state of Kentucky.

Governor Andy Beshear took a few moments to thank Richmond, Madison County, and the Lowery family. The Governor even thanked the oldest volunteer, Anthony’s mother, Naomi Lowery, for her time, effort, and support throughout the years.

Virgil Grant offered the closing prayer as well as presented a check in the amount of $33,000 to God’s Outreach from Eastside Community Church’s sponsorship of Tracks for Packs 5K held last weekend at the Richmond Centre. Grant also thanked Tammy Cole for her leadership role in Tracks for Packs. He then asked the audience to come lay their hands on Anthony Lowery, his wife Linda, and their daughter Mandy Lowery Agee. Grant and the crowd blessed the Lowery family and the new facility with the closing prayer.

Finally, Colleen Spencer gathered the crowd around the official ribbon cutting. Linda Lowery graciously cut the ribbon to open the new warehouse. The opening of God’s Outreach new warehouse is truly a blessing for Richmond and Madison, Estill, Jackson, and Lee counties.
