Kentucky communities are currently overwhelmed with in-kind donations from around the country. They are currently requesting a pause on donations until they are fully equipped to accept, store, manage, and distribute donations.

If you would like to give a monetary donation, please consider giving to the following funds that our KYVOAD partners have put together.

Donations made to the Coalition for Home Repair that are designated for tornado disaster recovery will fund building materials and tools for repairing and rebuilding homes occupied by low-income households whose needs exceed resources provided by FEMA and insurance.

100% of donated funds received by UWKY will go directly to recovery efforts.
