Please Help KY & VA Flood Victims!

Across Eastern Kentucky and Southern Virginia, dozens have lost their lives and hundreds have lost their homes, their cars, everything due to historic rains and flooding.

They could really use some help.

Several Mutual Aid organizations are raising funds to directly support immediate care needs. They are also actively collecting bottled water, cleaning supplies and medical donations, including tetanus vaccines.

**Please note: unless an organization is calling for clothing, please do not donate clothing. They ask us to only donate new items that are requested by drop-off organizers.**

Currently, the greatest areas of immediate need are:
