Eastern Kentucky Flood


HITS 106:  Marjorie’s Hope has been helping Pasco Kids for years, but now following the devastating floods in Kentucky, they’ve partnered with Fostering Change Fostering Hope, and are coordinating a community donation drive to help the families in Eastern Kentucky.  We’re here with Tanner Kielty of RJ Kielty and Debi Shackowsky of Marjorie’s Hope explaining how you can help.

TANNER:  When we heard about the need in Kentucky, we decided to dedicate our commercials on HITS 106 to helping the folks at Marjorie’s Hope raise donations.

HITS 106:   How can HITS 106 listeners help?

DEBI:  Through the donations of School supplies, diapers, wipes, baby formula and dog/cat food. Two elementary schools have been affected…and one school still has 8feet foot of water in the classrooms. School’s been delayed to the end of August, and another school can’t open until the end of September. Last week, Marjorie’s Hope donated 426 backpacks with school supplies and some personal hygiene items that were transported to Hazard, Kentucky with the assistance from local volunteers.  Were asking your help in sending more.

HITS 106:  Thanks Tanner and Debi!

The Perry County Health Department is also requesting donations of 2 person tents or larger, all camping equipment including cots, air mattresses, sleeping bags, flash lights, batteries of all sizes, fans, dehumidifiers, portable washing machines, laundry soap, and definitely more water.
