On Thursday, July 28, historic flooding consumed a large portion of eastern Kentucky and the Appalachian region. Kentuckians in the affected areas will likely feel the catastrophic effects of this tragedy for weeks, months, and even years to come as officials assess the extent of the damage and continually report a rising death toll.
To help with flood relief efforts, UK College of Medicine students have organized a donation drive of much-needed supplies for those who are in great need in the aftermath of the flooding.
Lexington Campus — First-floor student lounge. Supplies will be collected every Tuesday at 4 p.m. until Aug. 30.
RPLP/Morehead — Second floor of the CHER building in office suite 202
Based on requests from local, on-the-ground organizations and relief operations, these are the items requested for donation (*high demand items):
Medical students have gathered a list of local organizations that are taking online donations for relief funds.
If you choose to donate monetarily, please forward your donation receipt/amount to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com so that we can track the efforts and giving of the College community.
