We appreciate your concern for Eastern Kentucky and for reaching out to us. We have worked in this area since 2006 and love the people there. The flooding has been devastating in many areas and the area we serve – Floyd County and the surrounding area.
Here are some initial pictures from around our workshop and where we house our teams.
Many have asked how they can help!
DONATE SUPPLIES AND MONEY! Your monetary donations allow us to buy the specific materials for the needs we come across from residents affected by the storm. Our team is on the ground accessing the community’s needs and working alongside our partner church, Warehouse Church, and the mayor of Wayland.
