SFBC’s Kentucky Flood Relief Mission Project 

East Kentucky was devastated by record rainfall July 25th—30th of this year. Dozens of people lost their lives and more than 1,650 homes were destroyed or majorly damaged when the North Fork of the Kentucky River flooded. Some families are doing the best they can to recover, residing in campers and tents.
   Our SFBC Mission Team has been led to help our neighbors in KY. We will be taking up donations of needed items through Oct. 10th. These items will be presented to around 52 families in one area of Letcher County. A team of our members plans to hand deliver laundry baskets filled with the items to each family. We plan to head to KY on Friday, Oct. 21st and return on Monday, Oct. 24th. Some of these details are still being worked out due to the destruction that remains around that area. If you would like to go on this journey with us, please let  Stephanie Stokes know by Oct. 9th. 
 

We plan to present each family we help with a case of water and a laundry basket or plastic tote containing the following NEW items:

  • 4 bath towels
  • 4 washcloths
  • 4 bars of soap
  • 4 toothbrushes
  • 3 tubes of toothpaste
  • 2 shampoo & conditioners
  • 4 blankets (throw sized)
  • 1 jug of laundry detergent
  • 1 box of trash bags
  • 1 bottle of hand sanitizer
  • 1 4pk of toilet paper
  • 1 box of plastic forks (50ct)
  • 1 box of plastic spoons (50ct)
  • Paper (50ct) or reusable plastic plates (4)
  • Plastic cups (50ct) or reusable plastic cups (4)
 

The estimated cost of each filled basket is around $120, depending on the brands chosen.  Any donations of items, monetary gifts of any amount, or completed baskets will be greatly appreciated. Please turn items in by Oct. 10th so that we can put these blessings together. 

Thank you for continually showing love to those in need!
