NFRW Call to Action: Tornado Relief

Posted on 12-16-2021


As you all know, the people in Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee are suffering horrible devastation from the tornado that swept through their states on December 10th.  There are many charities collecting items and funds to help.  The National Federation of Republican Women is taking donations at the link below.  Please consider making a donation and make sure you designate it as “tornado relief.”  I am asking that the Sussex County Republican Committee use this link to donate as well, We are all Sussex County and we are united in trying to help our fellow citizens in these severely injured areas.  Please pray for them and may God bless our efforts.

NFRW Call-to-Action: Tornado Victims Need Our Help
In the wake of last Friday’s devastating tornadoes in Kentucky and five other states, Kentucky Federation President Pamela S. Roberts and I immediately started working closely to coordinate assistance for Kentucky, which was the hardest hit state. NFRW is awaiting word of any aid that will be needed for other states that, despite their own losses, are supplying necessary resources to Kentucky. The NFRW Caring for America and Homeland Security Committees have been mobilized, with Homeland Security member @RachelMartin helping arrange for heated tents that can be used as temporary living quarters.
Among those in Kentucky who have been identified so far as having lost their homes is Rachel Yates, the local club president in Marshall County, the epicenter of the powerful storm she describes as eradicating her neighborhood. Deb Blake, incoming secretary of a newly federated club in Western Kentucky, has been displaced after a harrowing experience. “The whole town is shocked and grieving! But we’re pulling together.”
YOU CAN HELP! While continuing to work on long-term relief plans, Kentucky requests that donations be made using the KFRW donations page, (designate your donation for “Tornado Relief Fund”), and KFRW will keep track of your targeted donations and get the money out to charities in the impacted areas.
