First-grader Jacob Jones donated his allowance and inspired his classmates at Lexington's Meadowthorpe Elementary to raise $1,450.
Employees at the Lexington Center collected money to buy 4,040 diapers and other supplies.
Technicians from around the region helped lay cables needed to get West Liberty Elementary School ready for students in its new location after it was damaged by tornadoes.
From the $927 collected from employees and patrons at Billy's Barbecue to ongoing efforts through a rebuilding fund at the Bluegrass Community Foundation, many people have reached out to tornado victims in the West Liberty area who were hit by massive storms on March 2.
Never miss a local story.
Here are highlights of a few, along with information about how to continue to help.
American Red Cross
Winn Stephens, development director for the American Red Cross Bluegrass Chapter, said the organization received donations of more than $750,000 to local efforts to help in the aftermath of the storm. The job of the Red Cross is to provide immediate relief, he said, so those still wanting to help may want to look at groups focused on long-term aid.
Bluegrass Community Foundation
The non-profit has established the Eastern Kentucky Tornado Rebuilding Fund, said president Lisa Adkins. The fund will benefit all counties declared disaster areas, she said.
"The hard, long work is really going to be engaging the community and potential donors in being involved in the effort in the long term," she said. "This means years."
There is no fund-raising goal for the effort, she said, in part because it's still unclear how great the needs may be.
