Most of you are aware that Stan Curtis, founder of Kentucky Harvest, was recently charged with seven felony counts by the U.S. Attorney's office. The charges include personally using over $180,000 in donations intended for his charity and failing to report that income to the IRS.
Most people I know were shocked by this news. Few people have had a more positive public image around here than Mr. Curtis, who founded Kentucky Harvest in 1987.
Within a couple of years, the concept had gone national, with USA Harvest now helping feed people in more than 130 cities nationwide. It truly is an organization that makes a positive difference in the fight against hunger.
That's why I bring this up. Not to condemn Stan Curtis or to rush to his defense. We'll let the legal system do that. I want to defend the organizations he founded, and help make sure they aren't hampered in their ongoing efforts by this negative publicity. They aren't accused or suspected of any wrongdoing, and it would be a shame for their work to suffer because of Mr. Curtis's personal legal issues.
So please – if you've always been a USA Harvest supporter, don't stop. And if you never have, well…maybe now's the time you can really make a difference.
