Donations pour in for government workers
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Scott Lanter needs more space. Thursday, Lanter started stocking shelved at Blue Grass Airport for government workers. He asked for donations of food and hygiene products.
24 hours later, the airport has not one, but two rooms and a fridge full of supplies.
As the government shutdown appears to be temporarily over, Lanter doesn’t forget what the experience was like for workers at the airport.
“I’ve seen folks crying, I’ve, you know, gotten hugs, which is normal, we’re really friendly here, but it’s very humbling to be able to help them in what little way we did,” said Lantern
Lanter says he will keep the pantry open next week for workers who still need it.
