On July 26th, Eastern Kentucky experienced severe weather and floods that heavily impacted the area and its residents. 160 Driving Academy Lexington Team hosted a donation drive and delivery day for Eastern Kentucky residents on Saturday, August 6th to help provide relief efforts. The event took place at 208 Legends Lane Lexington, KY 40505 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Supplies gathered included bottled water, dry goods, and non-perishable, dry food, and supplies for pets too. All supplies was delivered by our Lexington team to Chavies First Church of God at 185 Hunter Dr. Hazard, Kentucky on Monday, August 8th.
160 Driving Academy also made a GoFundMe page for people who couldn't attend the event and wanted to provide support. All funds raised will be donated to the Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund.
