Judge Darden to receive Humanitarian Award
Linnie Darden july 2017
Linnie Darden III

Judge Linnie L. Darden III will receive the Humanitarian Award at the 8th annual Hinesville Humanitarian of the Year Awards Banquet. The event will be presented by the Kirk Healing Center for the Homeless.

 “I am very honored to receive the Humanitarian Award at this year’s banquet,” Darden said. “I ask sometimes why Dr. Alicia Kirk isn’t the award recipient for all of the great work she does in the community.”

In 2018, Darden established a family drug treatment court for the Atlantic Judicial District to help families reunite after children have been removed from their homes as a result of a parental drug addiction. He also served as the general counsel for the Kirk Healing Center for the Homeless.

The Kirk Healing Center has been serving the homeless community for more than 14 years. In 2006 the KHC gained their 501c3 charity status and continued their mission of helping the homeless community. They provide life skills, housing, clothing and assistance in job training.

The banquet begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at the Liberty County Community Complex, 9397 Oglethorpe Highway in Midway. Gospel Singer Donna Jackson will perform and State Representative Ron Stephens will serve as the Master of Ceremony. A roast beef buffet will be served and dress is semi-formal.

Tickets cost $35 at the door and will help raise funds for the center. For more information contact Dr. Alicia Kirk at 912-369-2402 or
