More than 100 people are feared dead in Kentucky and neighboring states after a series of unseasonal storms struck overnight on Dec. 10, making this one of the most devastating tornado events in Kentucky's history. Your donation to this fund will provide emergency aid like food, water, medicine, and shelter in impacted communities. Once immediate needs are met, this fund will provide long-term assistance, with a focus on locally led responses.
All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in tornado-impacted communities in south and midwest US states. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will later transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in the communities affected in the United States.
How Your Donation Will Be Used
When you donate to GlobalGiving's Midwest US Tornado Relief Fund, your donation will be used to:
- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to people and animals
- Support temporary shelter and emergency supplies to displaced families
- Provide support to front-line workers, such as meals and gas
- Meet other needs as they emerge
