Group sends donations to flood victims

More help is arriving for flood victims in Pike County.

A truck filled with donations left the Christian Appalachian Project's facility on Palumbo Drive Thursday morning.

The donations came from people around central Kentucky.

The shipment that left Thursday morning was the third truckload taken to Pike County for flood relief.

Organizers say the amount of care and concern from people in and around Lexington has been overwhelming, and they hope it makes a difference.

"This is a particular incident where we have a lot of people that have lost their homes and all their possessions, and Lexington has come through," Garry Vickers of the Christian Appalachian Project said.

The donations included household items, clothes, and water.

The organization was not expecting to already have a truckload ready to go by Thursday.

All of the donations being delivered to Pike County Thursday are being dropped off at the East Kentucky Expo Center.

That's where people in need can pick up the items.

The warehouse on Palumbo Drive is still accepting donations through next week. It's open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
