Marion, North Carolina-based Greene Concepts has donated a truckload of Be Water to support residents affected by the recent flooding in Jackson, Kentucky.
Greene Concepts has sent 1,540 cases or 36,960 bottles of Be Water to the First Church of God in Jackson, Kentucky, for distribution amongst the area’s residents still in need of supplies. The truckload of Be Water arrived on Aug. 4.
“We are very grateful for the opportunity to donate Be Water to the people of Breathitt County, so that it may be delivered to the county’s most rural residents who have yet to receive potable water,” said Amy McNally, VP of sales and marketing.
“In addition to the 37 lives lost, and many others unaccounted for, the state also lost approximately 440 homes, which equates to more than 31 square miles of families that have had their homes destroyed. While nothing can replace the lives lost in this tragedy, we want to do our small part in helping Kentucky residents that have been tremendously impacted.”
Due to the overwhelming number of donations still being processed, volunteer organizations are asking for monetary donations to support the work being done in Breathitt County. They can be given to the Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief, with all proceeds will go toward room and board for the volunteer teams and other relief efforts helping those impacted.
“This is one of the most devastating deadly floods that we have seen in our history. These are proud, hardworking folks that just lost it all, and maybe even lost someone they love. The least we can do as human beings, as people of faith and values, is to give and do what we can to get them back on their feet,” said Gov. Andy Beshear.
