Kentuckians pulling together for mutual aid after disasters

Kentuckians are pulling together to help our neighbors hard hit by the flooding that struck many areas in Kentucky in early March, including some individuals and communities still recovering from ice storms and severe winter weather a week or two before.

The links below are good ways to make monetary contributions that will be distributed flood victims in eastern Kentucky. 

EKY Mutual Aid Community Fund

Southeast Kentucky Flood Relief Fund (donations also can be made to the SEKY Flood Relief at any Community Trust Bank location) 

Red River Gorge 2021 Flood Disaster Fund 

Paintsville First United Methodist Church Amazon Wishlist

The Hickman Holler Appalachian Relief Fund founded by Estill County natives Tyler Childers and Senora May.

There also are many activities and joint efforts to raise funds:

Many Appalachian musicians are coordinating and donating their talents for virtual concerts over the next few days and week. See more here.

The Christian Appalachian Project is available to help homeowners assess flood damage and make repairs. The organization said it has centers in Paintsville and in Mt. Vernon where people can go to request flood assistance between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. For more information or to help the Christian Appalachian Project, visit ChristianApp.org.

Elsewhere in the state, aid is being offered through the Bowling Green Micro Pantry  via FacebookInstagram, Venmo @bgmicropantry or CashApp $bgmicropantry (remember to include "BG Micro Pantry" in the description).

We will add to these lists as we become aware of other relief efforts. If you know a group or effort that needs to be added, please send to jhardt@kftc.org.
