Kentucky has been through a lot lately. It wasn’t too long ago when we were all donating to help the Western part of the state as the people that lived there reeled from destructive tornadoes. Now the Eastern part of the state is reeling from flash flooding that lasted for days.
Heartbreaking stories have caught the attention of the nation. Images and videos of people on their rooftops fill our various screens. Governor Andy Beshear once again has pledged all of his resources in order to help the victims of flooding.
There are multiple ways to donate and help, here are some of those ways.
Pitch in if you can. The people of Eastern Kentucky need all the help they can get.
