LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – More than a week after floods devastated eastern Kentucky, many people, including a University of Kentucky grad student, are joining in on relief efforts.
Kassidy Stumbo, a Floyd County native, and UK law student is taking car loads full of essentials to eastern Kentucky, a region struck by the floods and the place she calls home.
Stumbo said that once reports started coming in about the destruction of the flood, she knew she had to act.
“I started immediately trying to reach out to people, um, I think the most inspiring thing, most of the donations I got were from people my age, college kids,” said Stumbo.
The most recent load of donated supplies went to those affected in Knott County.
Stumbo said she plans on taking as many trips to deliver supplies as she can until her school courses begin.
