It started with a text message. “Most of us were missed by the storms, but were close to those who were not as lucky,” says Lisa West, executive director of Community Services of Northern Kentucky. She sent a text message to the staff on Saturday and asked if they’d be willing to donate supplies for tornado victims, and it snowballed from there. “We have more than I would have imagined,” she says. “Family members were dropping off items all day Tuesday. Items were left outside our door Monday night, and families from therapy brought items in as well. It was truly heartwarming.” On Tuesday evening, they took a truckload of supplies to Flour Creek Christian Church in Pendleton County. Supplies collected included clothing, shoes, coats, blankets, tarps, paper plates/cups/utensils, paper towels, cleaning supplies, personal care items, non-perishable food, water and even a shovel.
