Louise Arnett's work as a senior records manager for Federated Department Stores fuels more than just her take home pay. Louise applies her professional skills and donates time to the national Kids Café program that feeds more than 100 hungry children every week in Newport, Kentucky. According to Second Harvest, which runs Kids Cafe, 8 million children in the United States suffer every day from chronic hunger. In fact, of all the 26 million needy Americans assisted by the Second Harvest network each year, 38 percent are children under the age of 18. Betty Cooley, a retired cook, is Kids Café's executive chef and volunteer coordinator of the Newport, Kentucky program. "I just recruit and recruit and recruit," Betty says. "Not only does it help the kids but it makes you feel good. .. Just when they come in and they run up and they want that hug." Proving that our work ethic lives long past the last paycheck, Betty was recently awarded the Golden Rule prize, presented by JC Penny and the United Way to honor local citizens contributing to community.
