Help for Kentucky and central Appalachia flood victims

In late July and early August, the central Appalachia region was devastated by record rainfall and flooding. Both Eastern Kentucky and parts of Missouri were impacted by these floods that claimed dozens of lives and caused extensive damage to infrastructure. A state of emergency was declared on July 26 for Missouri by the Governor and Lieutenant Governor. On July 29, President Biden approved a disaster declaration to help support with recovery efforts in Kentucky.

Consider lending your support to help those impacted.
