Kentucky church makes a special delivery to Gatlinburg

CORBIN, Ky. (WKYT) - There are a lot of people trying to help out after the Gatlinburg fire.

All week long people have dropped off blankets, food, and over 2,000 water bottles to Parkway Ministries in Corbin.

"It's just been heavy on my heart since I saw the beginning of this tragedy and it's just something I had to do," Church member Billy Broughton said.

Broughton, along with his family and other church members, made the trip to New Hope Church is Sevier County Saturday morning.

Parkway Ministries connected with the church, who will be giving these items to those impacted by the fires.

"This is God working through us and helping us to help other people."

Broughton says since Wednesday, people have been stopping by the church to drop off item.

He says they even had someone stop by this Saturday morning as they were loading up.

"We didn't expect such a huge overwhelming response. People are beyond generous."

A large cargo van was provided by Broughton's employer, Aisin Automotive Casting in London Kentucky, to bring all the items to Gatlinburg.
