Please refer to the graphic below.
Thanks so much to everyone who has donated and who is still donating items to help the flood victims of Owsley County!!! We are still trying to get word out and there are many that are in need that aren’t learning about the available resources as quickly as possible. County and city officials are out still working to locate where all of the damages are and it’s a slow tedious process because we’ve had so much damage spread out around the county. Some people were cut off from being able to get out even after the high waters receded. There’s so much damage and so much to do!
