LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- Volunteers and first responders throughout the Commonwealth gathered in Lexington Monday to plan a relief trip to storm torn Oklahoma.
20 members of the group "KY To OK Storm Relief Effort" will leave Lexington this Friday and stay until the following Wendsday to provide aid in tornado struck areas of Oklahoma.
The group hopes to give Oklahoma first responders a break, so they can take care of there families and property that was damaged in last week's deadly tornado outbreak.
"The first responders in Moore, Oklahoma have not been able to take care of their own families yet, their own houses, and what not. And we decides we need to take care of them while they take care of everybody else." said volunteer Christopher Harris.
Many of the group members have taken part in disaster relief effort ranging from 9-11 to the tornado outbreaks here in Kentucky just last year.
