More help is on the way for thousands of students living in areas damaged by the March 2 tornado outbreak.

UK HealthCare employees packed up school supplies for West Liberty this morning.

"We wanted to do something more. So we kinda thought and thought and decided upon what they might need at this time of year when all the children were going back to school," said Bonnie Thorton, with UK HealthCare.

UK HealthCare employees have been preparing for weeks by collecting notebooks, pencils, tissues, and anything children might need for school.

The back to school bash is something Morgan County puts on every year. UK healthcare employees felt compelled to give them the little extra help that is needed this year.

"Because of the devastation in the community, they had no one that could help the children with their needs so that's why we stepped in to do that," said Thorton.

UK Healthcare employees say they will continue fulfilling medical needs but also do whatever else they can to serve Kentuckians.

They arrived this afternoon at the Morgan County ARH to deliver the donated items to those in need.
