United Storm Relief Fund To Help Kentuckians Impacted By Ice Storm

In support of the United Way of the Bluegrass and its effort to help victims of this week’s ice storm, WKYT along with News Radio 630 WLAP and The Herald-Leader are teaming up for “United Storm Relief” on Monday, Feb. 2.

As utility companies struggle through ice-encrusted debris to restore power to thousands of Kentuckians, many people are seeking assistance from charities and organizations throughout the Bluegrass State. In times of need like this past week’s winter storm, United Way is able to respond to the community's most vital needs by funding programs that are in the best interest of the community, making sure the most vital needs get the most attention.

From noon to 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 2, United Way staff and volunteers will be answering calls and taking donations at WKYT. During its newscasts and during cut-ins during afternoon programming, WKYT will promote “United Storm Relief” and how viewers can make donations or ask questions on how to get assistance during this unprecedented time of need. “United Storm Relief” is also being sponsored and promoted by News Radio 630 WLAP and The Herald-Leader.

During the live “United Storm Relief” fundraiser from noon to 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 2 viewers and listeners can make a donation or ask questions by calling (800) 500-1513.

To reach United Way anytime, 211 is one simple number that can connect those in need with information about shelters or other needs. Should 211 not work on your phone, you can also reach United Way at (859) 313-5465.
