As most of you know, the state of Kentucky has been hit pretty hard with heavy storms these last few weeks. One of the hardest hit areas has been Johnson County, where four people have died due to flooding and countless people have lost their homes. With more rain on the way, the UK Hoops team wants to help our Eastern Kentucky neighbors. From tomorrow (Monday the 20th) until Friday (July 24th), the Hoops team will be accepting donations at the women’s basketball office in the Joe Craft Center during regular business hours (9 am- 5 pm). Although they cannot take clothing or monetary donations, they are suggesting things such as: baby and personal hygiene items, toilet paper, paper towels, bandages, rubber gloves, cleaning supplies, and socks.

In another act of kindness for Johnson County, Sundy Best will be performing a free benefit concert for the victims in the Johnson County High School parking lot on July 22nd. Although the concert will be free, donations will be accepted at the entrance.

For more information on the UK Hoops collection head over here or call 859-257-6046, and to learn more about Sundy Best’s performance, click here.

We’re sending lots of prayers your way, Johnson County.
