F.U.N names Reinhold as Community Hero

F.U.N. is happy to announce our October Community Hero is Karl Reinhold. When I was able to talk with Karl about being chosen, I thought he was going to cry, he was very humbled. He told me that as he was walking into Wal-Mart one day, three ladies stopped him and said that they wanted to personally congratulate him for being chosen as the Community Hero.

He was chosen for having what people call a servant’s heart. He is known to donate, serve and prepare all the food for the Special People’s Day for over the past 10 years, He donates all the supplies, ice, food and its said that if he sees food running low he runs back to Hoops and prepares more. He helps with the Annual Golf Outing for Breast Cancer for Frito Lay. It’s said whenever they have a need Karl is right there to help them. There was a time that Frito Lay called and wanted to place an order for biscuits and gravy for an employee, Karl again went into action, set it all up and donated everything for that breakfast.

Karl has hosted many poker/motorcycle benefit rides, he allows businesses and private citizens to host breakfast and allows business meetings at no charge. He hosts the monthly retirees breakfast for Frito Lay.

He helps with coats for kids, books for kids, birthday cards for our veterans, lift chairs for our veterans and Christmas in July at the Veterans Home.

It’s said that when he caters an event, he provides unwavering 24-hour support. He prepared the chili and all the necessary supplies for the Woodside School Reunion, and did it with what they called their shoe-string budget.

Karl has defiantly showed where there is a need in our community he reaches out and gives back. Many have said that he would give the shirt off his back for you. So with all that being said we at F.U.N. (Frankfort’s Unified Neighborhood) would again like to say we are proud to say that Karl Reichold is our October Community Hero. He truly shows that you can “BE THE CHANGE” by putting UNITY back into COMMUNITY one event at a time.
