NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — The staff of a Nicholasville program for adults with disabilities are thrilled after receiving an influx of donations. To show their gratitude, they decided to have Free Friday.

Usually, Diana Lemay, the Executive Director of Full Circle Supports, takes inventory of the donations that come through the doors, but they have so much stuff, Lemay decided they might as well help others.

"One lady last week came and decorated her whole apartment, I think, with stuff she got from us for free.

Several adults enrolled in the Full Circle Supports program worked alongside Lemay. About 50 people with mental disabilities attend the program every week to work, They learn how to run a business and they run a screenprinting press, make trophies, and work in the consignment shop.

"They're learning about job skills and employment, ya know, how to get along and interact with customers, Lemay said.
