|Since the devastating tornados that hit Kentucky and Indiana just a couple of weeks ago we have been asking you to hold off until the immediate needs of the victims are met. We have said your time to help will be coming; well its time.
Now that the media has left, the first responders have stabilized the situation, the real work begins. Think of this as the second responders and neighbors helping neighbors.
The immediate need we have in Eastern Kentucky is the biggest resource we have, people. We need you and we need you to roll up your shelves and come out this weekend and help become the clean up. There are people literally picking up their lives and need a neighbor to stand beside them and help. There are farmers whose fields are scattered with debris and they need your help to clear it so they can continue their livelihood. This is your opportunity now to help, please consider being a part of it.
Young Professionals of Eastern Kentucky is hosting a volunteer day this Saturday, March 24t in both London and west Liberty Kentucky. Please consider coming out and helping them in those areas with the overwhelming clean up efforts needed.
YPEK is generous to take the lead on this effort and hopes you will be able to offer your time and energy as we unite together to assist our communities and others in need. If you are able to help, please email
