LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The community has stepped up to help a West Louisville community center keep its doors open.
More than $133,000 has been raised for the St. Anthony Outreach Center.
This comes just four months after Louisville businessman Charlie Johnson raised $25,000 and urged the community to take part in a campaign to raise $100,000 to keep the center open.
Leaders like Michael Hasken say they appreciate the effort, but there are still needs that must be met.
"Financial goals are always a target that we seldom ever reach so we still have a long way to go," said Hasken. We've collected about $130,000 or $140,000 so far, but we have a budget of $200,000 this year, give or take a few dollars, so it's always a continuing effort for us to do fundraising."
Republic Bank, Sun Tan City and the Crescent Hill Women's Club were some of the organizations that stepped up to make significant donations to keep the center open.
