Manchester residents have teamed up to begin a collection of items for victims of recent floods in Eastern Kentucky.
A trailer will be dropped off Monday, Aug. 8 in the Southern Family Market parking lot to be filled. The items will be driven to the Sycamore Volunteer Fire Department for distribution.
Items needed include:
Cleaning supplies (trash bags, gloves, brooms, brushes)
No clothing is being accepted at this time.
In addition to collection items, anyone wishing to make monetary donations to cover fuel expenses of the trip can be made at 1873 Hillsboro Blvd. in Manchester (Imhoff Landscape). Additional funds over fuel costs will be used for gift cards for more supplies.
Southern Family Markets parking lot is located at 2050 Hillsboro Blvd. next to Al White Ford Lincoln.
Flood waters ravaged the eastern part of Kentucky in late July, leaving at least 37 people dead.
