The Appalachian floods hit states with some of the highest poverty rates in the US, breaking rainfall records, causing dangerous mudslides, and washing away entire homes. Recovery will be a long road for families who lost everything. Your donation to the Kentucky and Appalachia Flood Relief Fund will meet emergency needs, such as the provision of food, water, and shelter, and provide long-term support in affected communities.
All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for people impacted by flooding in eastern Kentucky and the Appalachian region. Initially, funding will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will then transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in Kentucky, West Virginia, and other affected regions.
