FRANKFORT, Ky. - Aug. 10, 2017 - PRLog -- Custom Data Processing, Inc. (CDP), an Illinois company with a data center and development facility in Frankfort, Kentucky, has donated $7,500 to the Actively Caring Christians Engaging Support Services (ACCESS) Soup Kitchen and Men's Shelter in Frankfort. The organization provides food, shelter, counseling, job placement, and other assistance to local men in need.

CDP has supported the charity for several years, making end-of-year donations that are funded by employee contributions. The current donation was made to kick start the 2017 Building Fund campaign, which will be used to pay for upgrades and renovation of the kitchen, dining, and men's dormitory within the facility.

Stan Cochran, CDP CEO and board member of ACCESS, made the donation, and issued a challenge to the community. "We are raising $225,000 to fund this complete renovation and upgrade. My company, Custom Data Processing, has pledged $7,500 toward this worthy cause. I challenge my friends to meet or exceed this donation. The highest contributor will receive special recognition in the newly renovated facility."

The Executive Director of ACCESS, Andrew Baker, expressed his gratitude for the gift. "ACCESS Soup Kitchen and Men's Shelter is thankful to CDP for their generous donation to help us kick off our capital campaign to rebuild our existing building.  The upgrade of our facility will allow us to continue to support the working poor and homeless in Frankfort for the next 30-plus years.  Donations from the business community are crucial to help us serve our community, and made it possible in 2016 for our Soup Kitchen to serve 27,798 meals."

The current campaign is raising funds for a two-phased renovation project that began in 2015. Donations can be made to the ACCESS Soup Kitchen and Men's shelter online at Alternatively, checks may be mailed to ACCESS Soup Kitchen and Men's Shelter, P.O. Box 1324, Frankfort, KY 40602.
