This Week's E-chievement Award.
By admin ~ September 19, 2008
Helen Ashe & Ellen Turner are 80-year old identical twins that were born into a sharecropper family in the south. Inspired by their father’s words: “Never take the last piece of bread — there may be someone hungrier than you,” they started The Love Kitchen in Knoxville, TN, in 1986, to help feed the hungry. This nonprofit, non-denominational community center provides hot meals, emergency groceries, and home delivered meals to thousands each week. Since beginning, The Love Kitchen has fed well over a million people.
The award was presented to the sisters during the taping of an Etown show featuring musical guests Ben Harper & Sonya Kitchell. This show airs September 17-23, 2008. Click here to find out how to listen to the entire show.
