- Obtaining food pantry donations for a local homeless shelter in Clark County
- Supporting a county health department to provide health assessments and education on health promotion to Amish school students in Washington County
- Working with the Floyd County Center for Women and Children
- Educating pregnant residents at the Kentucky Correctional Institute for Women
