How you can help Kentucky storm victims

March 3, 2012 

The Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross, in cooperation with the Lexington Herald-Leader, Clear Channel Radio, WKYT and Central Bank, has set up the Kentucky Cares Campaign to assist those affected by Friday's storms.

At this time, the easiest way to help those affected by the storms is to give a financial donation to the Kentucky Cares Campaign. Here is how:

- Text Redcross 90999

- Visit and give to the Disaster Relief Fund

- Drop a check off at any Central Bank location

- Mail a check to 1450 Newtown Pike, Lexington, KY 40511 with Kentucky Cares in the memo line

"Our thoughts and sympathies are with those who lost loved ones or have suffered through these deadly storms," said Terry Burkhart, CEO of the Bluegrass Chapter. "Red Cross disaster teams are working around the clock to help the hundreds of people whose lives are turned upside down."
