On Monday, heavy rains devastated Johnson County in Eastern Kentucky, destroying almost an entire neighborhood along Highway 172. The pictures are incredibly sad, and several of you have been asking how to help. We finally have some information to pass along.
On Friday, the Bluegrass Area Chapter of the American Red Cross, WKYT and iHeartMedia Lexington are joining forces to show victims of this week’s floods that Kentucky Cares.
From noon until 6:30 p.m., volunteers will take donations over the phone from a special donation call center at WKYT. In addition to iHeartMedia’s phone bank, WKYT will have extensive coverage from the hardest hit places.
Money raised Friday will go to American Red Cross disaster relief fund, of which Johnson County is one of, not the sole, beneficiaries.
