Residents are beginning the rebuilding process in tornado-ravaged Joplin, Missouri and southeastern Kentuckians are trying to help.

Brian Sizemore and Josh Good make a living broadcasting over the radio. But these two radio personalities are using their fame for a good cause. They have started requesting donations for those in Joplin.

"What if that had happened to us?" explains Good. "Would we not want someone to come bring us non perishable food items and the items that are needed right now in Joplin."

And their audience members are listening. "The next thing we know ... within four days the whole left side of our station is full of nothing but items" describes Sizemore.

Some of the items needed are:
Non-perishable Food
Bottled Water
Baby Item
First Aid Items
Toiletries
Clothing
Rubbermaid bins

You can donate at the station at:

Somerset- Alton Blakley Honda
London – SAM 103.9 & Kool Gold 96.7 Studio’s on Tobacco Road
Columbia – WAIN Studio’s on Liberty Road

The crew is leaving to Joplin early Friday morning.
