At the end of July, Eastern Kentucky saw horrible flooding that took many lives and destroyed so much in that part of the state. Almost immediately after the flooding occurred, SOAR launched an Eastern Kentucky Student Relief Fund with 100% of donations going directly towards student and whatever they need as they face a challenging school year.
Per SOAR’s website, the Eastern Kentucky Student Support Fund is supporting improved living conditions and student essentials such as:
- School supplies
- Household appliances
- Rental assistance
- Gas cards for transportation to and from school
- Other essentials as they arise and are communicated by school districts
Laurel County native and University of Kentucky basketball commit Reed Sheppard is joining the effort and will present a donation to the SOAR EKY Student Support Fund.
He will make his donation on this Saturday at 2:30 ahead of Kentucky’s Blue-White game that’s being played in Pikeville. The donation will be held at Millard Grade School in Pikeville during a basketball camp where Reed is volunteering for more than 50 kids in grades 1-8 to teach them fundamental basketball skills. Partners for the event are Delta Dental of Kentucky, Bob & Carol Griffin as well as Midwest Basketball Club.
Kentucky is lucky to have a player of Sheppard’s talent coming to play for the Wildcats but they’re also blessed by the type and class of the young man he is.
